Short CV

Since June 2013, I am a researcher and Ph.D. student at the Chair of Communication and Distributed Systems. I received my master's degree in computer science at RWTH Aachen University in April 2013. As a member of the Network Architectures group, my research interests lie in scalable and adaptive networks, especially in offloading techniques for content as well as protocols and control functionality.

Currently, I am working in the MAKI project, which aims at developing scalable and adaptive mechanisms for the future Internet. 



The basis for this project was a thesis supervised by Jan Rüth and me. The goal is to provide an affordable and mobile power monitoring solution for mobile devices. The resulting device, named PowerGraph, is realized as an extension board for the Raspberry Pi (B+). More information, e.g., the hardware schematics and the developed software, can be found here
