Dr.-Ing. Alwyn Johannes Burger has been employed as a researcher at Prof. Schiele's Embedded Systems group at the University of Duisburg-Essen since April 2015. He received his bachelor’s degree in electrical and electronic engineering at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa in 2012 with a focus on Robotics. In March 2015 he received his master’s degree in engineering from the University of Stellenbosch for his work on autonomous 3D mapping using stereo vision.

In March 2023, he submitted his doctoral thesis entitled "FPGA-Augmented Intelligent Devices for the Internet of Things," earning him the degree of Dr.-Ing.
