Michael Geisinger received his doctoral degree from Technische Universität München (TUM) in 2015 for his dissertation on the topic of "Game-based Synthesis for Distributed Control of Industrial Assembly Lines". After his studies of Computer Science at TUM, he was employed as a research assistant at the Chair for Robotics and Embedded Systems at TUM from 2007 to 2009.
Since 2010, he is with the fortiss institute, where he has been working in context of the research projects about process monitoring, middleware architectures and software synthesis for industrial automation. In addition, from 2011 to 2015 he has been responsible for the development of the CHROMOSOME Middleware, a software system for networking complex distributed systems with real-time data exchange and plug & play configurability. He is currently in the process of founding a spinoff bringing the CHROMOSOME technology as "CHROMOSOME Industrial" to the industrial market.
