Professor Buss studied electrical engineering at TH Darmstadt and was awarded a doctorate at the University of Tokyo (1994). In 2000, he completed his lecturer qualification at TUM and was appointed to the Chair of Control Systems at TU Berlin. He has been full professor of control technology at TUM since 2003.

Professor Buss researches methods in control and system theory, in particular hybrid (discrete/continuous), switching, nonlinear dynamic systems for use in mechatronics, robotics, medical technology, communication technology, telepresence systems, teleaction systems and man-machine systems.
