M. Sc. Janna Hofmann studied mechanical engineering at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Since 2015 she works as a research associate at the Institute of Production Science (wbk). There she is part of the group of electro mobility in the department of machines equipment and process automation of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jürgen Fleischer. Her research interest is about the simulation of coil winding processes, the development of innovative winding strategies and new control algorithms to minimize the tensile force. Since 2017 she is the group leader of the group electro mobility and therefore responsible for all research topics regarding the production of components in the electric drive chain.
