Klaus grew up in Worms, Germany. In 1989, he received his Dipl. Ing. (Diplom-Ingenieur) degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Kaiserslautern, Germany. Having been awarded a DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) scholar ship, he shortly thereafter enrolled in the graduate program in Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Tech. He received his M.S. degree in Summer of 1991 and is currently persuing a Ph.D. degree.

He has been a research and teaching assistant in the School of Mechanical Engineering since Fall 1990. From July to October 1994 he was a graduate fellow at Pacific Northwest Laboratory. After completion of the Ph.D. degree Klaus planns to work in industry in the area of robotics and automation. His research interests include automatic controls, sensors, machine vision and robotics.
