Forschungsschwerpunkt (Research Focus):

  • Large Language Models for Specialized Tasks in Industrial Automation
  • Intelligent Autonomous Systems based on Large Language Model Agents and Digital Twins.
  • Semantics in Digital Twins

Beschreibung (Description):

LLMs exhibit remarkable capabilities in interpreting complex texts and utilizing collective human knowledge. These models exhibit impressive proficiency in comprehending and analyzing semantics in natural language, while also displaying advanced abilities in reasoning and problem-solving.

By combining automation systems, digital twins and large language models, my research seeks to develop more intelligent and efficient systems. On one hand, automation systems are enhanced with digital twins and LLMs to unlock the potential of data- and AI-driven smart factories. On the other hand, LLMs can interact with physical environments by having an embodiment in reality through the established infrastructure that consists of automation systems and digital twins. This approach equips an artificial “brain” with mechatronic “hands” and “eyes” for more intelligent interaction. By combining these interdisciplinary technologies, my objective is to develop innovative technology stacks that enhance the efficiency and intelligence of smart factories.

My academic voyage started at the esteemed Wuhan University in China (2011), where I earned my first Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Design and Automation (2017). During this period, I also participated in a dual-degree program that took me to the University of Stuttgart. Here, I completed the full study program in Automotive and Engine Technology, earning my second Bachelor’s Degree in Germany (2017).

For my master’s studies, I delved into the specialized fields of Mechatronics and Autonomous Driving. I earned my master’s degree from the University of Stuttgart in 2019 and felt compelled to continue my academic journey, leading me to pursue a doctoral degree.

In 2020, I proposed my doctoral research, which received financial backing from the Stiftung der Deutschen Wirtschaft, which aims to supporting entrepreneurship. This project was conducted at the Institute of Industrial Automation and Software Engineering (IAS) and under the affiliation of the Graduate School of Excellence in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (GSaME) at the University of Stuttgart. Since then, my focus has shifted to the semantic analysis of information models. My exploratory research journey has led me to the fields of Neural Language Models and Deep Learning. My expertise lies in Large Language Models and their applications in industrial automation. Driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, I am focused on developing research products that offer both economic and social value.
