Dr.-Ing. Michael Pehl received his Dr.-Ing. degree in 2012 from the Technische Universität München. His thesis with title “Discrete Sizing of Analog Integrated Circuits” was carried out at the Institute for Electronic Design Automation and focused on the development of optimization algorithms for yield-aware analog sizing considering discrete design parameters. For this piece of work he received the Kurt-Fischer Prize of TUM in 2013. In 2012, he became researcher and teaching associate at the Chair for Security in Information Technology or TUM, and has been teaching several courses in the field of circuit design and hardware security. Today, he is senior researcher leading a research group on Hardware Intrinsic Security with strong focus on Physical Unclonable Functions.
