Early life and education
Kindt enrolled in Ulm University in 2005, where he pursued a degree in Electrical Engineering. Soon after his graduation in 2008, Kindt went to the Technical University of Munich to further study electrical and computer engineering with a concentration in electronic systems and embedded systems.
Kindt currently serves as a junior teacher at Chemnitz University of Technology. Prior to that, he was a faculty member at the University of Munich, where he taught Microprocessor Systems Lab along with contributing to other courses including Low-Power Systems Design, Real-Time and Embedded Systems, and Advanced Seminar Real-Time Computer Systems. Kindt also overlooks the DA, BA, and MA student research projects and has supervised over 35 students till now.
Apart from that, Kindt is a member of several technical program committees such as DSD, SPCPS, SECON, and VLSI-SoC. Throughout his career, Kindt has also substantially contributed in reviewing publications in multiple conferences/journals including the ACM/IEEE International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS), the IEEE Wireless Communications Magazine (WCM), the ACM SIGBED International Conference on Embedded Software (EMSOFT) and IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing (TMC) to name a few.
Kindt, throughout his career, has worked on a number of national and international software projects. As of 2021, Kindt is working on DFG CH 918/5-1: Slotless Protocols for Fast and Energy-Efficient Neighbor Discovery and BMBF-funded project FuturTrans.
