Narendra Singh is currently a research assistant at CCARD, working on multiple projects including areas of renewable systems like batteries and solar energy. He graduated in Mechanical Engineering from Rajasthan technical university in India. He has a strong background in the basic principles of engineering, methods and practices in mechanical system design. Also he has practical experience in CAD designing tools and MATLAB.



 Genbo Chen (陈亘勃)

Genbo Chen has been studying mechanical engineering at the Carinthia University of Applied Science. He graduated from Foreign Languages School Attached to Guangxi Normal University. During a number of Projects collaboration, he got numerous experiences in Fluid Dynamics Simulation using Blender, Autodesk Inventor, MATLAB, ANSYS and C++. He is currently involved in an strategic simulation and design project in cooperation with industrial partners.




Nicolas Neumann-Micheau

Nicolas Neumann-Micheau, MSc.

Nicolas Neumann-Micheau graduated as M.Sc. in Biomimetics in Energy Systems at CUAS after obtaining his B.Sc. in Biomimetics at HS Bremen, Germany. Always diversely interested, his strong educational background in Biomimetics allows him to pursue an interdisciplinary approach in problem solving , combining the fields of biology, material science, photovoltaics, renewable energy, nanomaterials, CAD and FEM. His research included the heat conductivity and insulation capabilities of tree bark as well as the light conducting mechanisms found in hermatypic stone corals and their potential as a solar energy material.
His practical expertise ranges from material science (natural fibre compounds, high-tech ceramics) and CAD and FEM simulations (CATIA, SolidWorks, Ansys, MSC Marc Mentat) to book translations.  After recently becoming a member of CARD, he is now combining his scientific background with his lifelong passion for photography in the field of scientific journalism.



Waseem Ahmed, MSc.

Waseem Ahmed

Waseem Ahmed, has graduated as a Master of Science in Bionics/Biomimetics in energy systems at CUAS, he obtained Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from osmania university India. He has a strong background in the basic principles of engineering, methods and practices in mechanical system design, testing and troubleshooting mechanical equipment. Also he has practical experience in using FEA software and advanced CAD designing tools. He has pratical training in fields of project management and HVAC obtained in advanced training institute India. During his master, he has learned about nature’s way of dealing with problems in various fields like structural mechanics, light weight design, Nano surfaces, heating and cooling and non-technical fields like process analysis, process optimization (basic knowledge of genetic algorithms) feasibility studies. His technical skills includes FEM, CAD, Matlab, C, Java, Catia, SolidWorks,Inventor, AutoCad. He has also practical skills including welding, metal fitting, smithy, manual lathe operation.


Philippe BecquetPhilippe Becquet

Philippe Becquet started his studying career in Theoretical/Fundamental Physics, following a Bachelor Degree at the University Paris 7 – Denis Diderot. After graduation, he moved to Villach, Austria, to study the Master Degree “Biomimetics in Energy Systems”, in which he found a more applied and “useful” approach of studying sciences, having Nature as a central source of inspiration for research, technology and innovation. His tastes for travelling and discovering new cultures brought him to several countries in Europe, as well as Taiwan and Japan. His expertise are no longer in Physics only, for he does not like to “limit himself” to one field of science, but value more an interdisciplinary approach instead, combining Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Renewable Energy, Material Science, Computer Simulations, etc. Recently becoming member in CARD, he is now working on a 3D printable temperature-responsive water valve.


Martin Trojer

Foto_Trojer Martin

Martin Trojer, studied mechanical engineering at the Carinthia University of Applied Science. He has previously attended the technical college for mechatronics, and passed several months Training in Miami / USA. He has experiences of working with several companies in the field of mechanical engineering. He has practical experiences in CAD Software, construction of special machines, creating technical documentation, and performing authority approvals of machines. He is currently a Member of CARD research center, working on development of a Filament Maker and Composite Materials for 3D Printing.
