Reemt Hinrichs studied Mechatronics at Leibniz Universität Hannover. In May 2017, he finished his Master's Degree with his thesis on "System-theoretical modeling of a structural sound signal path" at the Institut für Informationsverarbeitung (TNT). Since January 2018, he is working as a research assistant towards his PhD degree at the same Institute.

Currently I am working on deep learning models for the compression of electrode excitation patterns of cochlear implants.
