Ehemaliger Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter

I started my work at the Institute of Operating Systems and Computer Networks in Oct. 2003. I am a research staff member and PhD candidate in the Communication and Multimedia Research Group, under the supervision of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Lars Wolf. My research interests include network architecture and protocol stack for emerging new communication paradigms (e.g. autonomic communications, complex system, self-organizing networks etc.), and network entertainment. The focus of my work is network self-management. In my previous years, I studied M.Sc. in Information and Communication Technology at the International University in Germany, Bruchsal between Sep. 1999 and Aug. 2001. I was a software developer (Intern) for one year at the NEC Network Laboratories in Heidelberg, Germany, where I also did my intership and master thesis. In between, I spent a term abroad at the ECS of the University of Southampton , UK. I was with the Panasonic Multimedia Communication European Lab (now Panasonic R&D Center, Germany) as a research engineer from Sep. 2001 to Sep. 2003.
