Christine, daughter of Konrad V and Helga Hitz was raised in Klagenfurt where she was born. With 14 years she attended a commercial high-school and finished the same in 1990. 1991 she went to Canada as an aupair for almost a year. Back in Austria, she attended a tourism college and finished it and went to Graz for two years working at a travel agency. Back to Klagenfurt in 1996 she worked at an insurance agency. She married Richard Gaggl on July 26, 1997. In 2006, Christine attended a training for nutrition coach at Neue Akademien“ in Villach. She finished this education in 2007. 2008 started her study of educational science at Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt. Christine is actually promoting her project „SOKO-Kochwerkstatt“, which deals with creating organic snacks for scholars considering sustainability with enlarging social expertise in mind. Her leisure time belongs to her daughters and husband and the creating of shopping and cosmetic bags out of recycling material. She loves running with her dog and meeting friends.
Richard received the Dipl.-Ing. (M.S.) degree in telematics and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Technology, Graz, Austria, in 1997 and 2009, respectively. In 1996, he joined Siemens Semiconductor where he worked as an analog design engineer on Voice-CODECs. From 1999 to 2009, he held several managing and design positions at Infineon Technologies Austria, working for the wireline communication division. He developed entire analog front ends for voice-, xDSL- and WLAN-systems. From 2009 to 2012 he was in charge of a mixed-signal design group at Lantiq Austria, where he managed and designed mixed-signal transceiver circuits for xDSL-GPON- and Home-Networking solutions. Since 2012, Richard has been a Principal Engineer for mixed-signal design with Infineon Technologies Austria where he has established an analog design group for consumer sensor circuits such as silicon microphone ASICs. His technical interests and expertise are in the field of oversampling A/D and D/A converters, analog circuit design and the development of entire analog front-ends in advanced CMOS. He has contributed to more than 40 patents and has published several journal and conference papers. In 2009, he received the Award of Excellence for his PhD thesis bestowed by the Austrian Federal Minister of Science and Research. Richard is author of the book Delta-Sigma A/D-Converters – Practical Design for Communication Systems (Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg, 2013).
Marie became 16 this summer. Currently (2014) she attends the sixth grade of secondary school at Bundesrealgymnasium Viktring. The focus oft that type of school is in sculptural work. This summer Marie will start with her lessons for driving license. To Christine that could mean saying good bye to my little car. She has two more years left at school and the family is looking ahead to all the things Marie will teach them. She likes meeting friends, swimming and inline-skating.
Anna is 13 years old, at the beginning of her teenager-years. The family is a little bit suffering from that. She is attending the secondary school at Bundesgymnasium Viktring in third grade. She loves to ride horses and since she started to do that she tells her parents every time, where they could buy one. Certainly, some day she will work with animals. She is a very careful little girl who is taking care of all the belongings of the family.
