CV

Prof. Kai-Dietrich Wolf was born on March 29, 1968 in Wiesbaden/Germany. He studied mechanical engineering and applied mechanics at Darmstadt University of Technology and at the University of California at Berkeley as a DAAD scholar. Prof. Wolf received his Ph.D. in applied mechanics with a thesis on „Electromechanical Energy Conversion in Asymmetric Piezoelectric Bending Actuators“ from Darmstadt University of Technology.

Right after that he spent one year as a postdoc at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology – in Haifa, doing research on nonlinear effects in Atomic Force Microscopes.

In a spin-off company of Siemens AG, aiming at bringing a small piezoelectric drive to market, Prof. Wolf was responsible for all research activities and IP-protection by patenting.

At the chair of “System Reliability and Machine Acoustics” at Darmstadt University of Technology he developed the division “System Reliability” and was responsible for project acquisition and fundraising as well as project management in the position of deputy chair.

In 2009, Kai-Dietrich Wolf was appointed full professor for “Mechatronics” at Wuppertal University. He gives lectures on mechatronics, security systems, smart materials and reliability. Professor Wolf is head of the Institute for Security Systems as part of Wuppertal University.

Since April 2017, he is chair of the new VDI technical committee “Synthesis of Safety and Security”.

His main research interests currently focus on methods of quantitative security (vulnerability) and risk analysis as well as on innovative technologies of advanced access control systems.
