Professor Dr. Sabah Badri-Hoeher is a physicist and engineer specializing in electrical engineering and information technology.  For twelve years, she has headed the Digital Signal Processing group at Kiel University of Applied Sciences (FH Kiel) in the Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. Her studies in Casablanca and Paderborn led her first to the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits in Erlangen as well as to the universities in Bremen and Oldenburg, before she accepted the professorship at FH Kiel in 2009. At the Faculty of Engineering of CAU Kiel, she regularly gives lectures on the topic of underwater techniques.  With numerous projects, she succeeded in building up underwater information technology in Kiel and giving it international visibility. The Autonomous Underwater Robots (AUV) that Badri-Hoeher is developing with her team can be used in the future, for example, to inspect and maintain offshore wind farms or as an AUV swarm in deep water.
