Short Bio

I am a Senior Researcher, head of the Smart Urban Networks research group in the Telecooperation Lab (TK) at TU Darmstadt. Before joining TK, I was a Research Associate at SnT Luxembourg. I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science with distinction from the Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Science. During Sep 2012 - Jan 2014, I was a visiting researcher at IMDEA Networks Institute in Madrid, Spain, supervised by Prof. Antonio Fernandez Anta. I am a member of IEEE and ACM. My Erdös number is 3.

Master Thesis

[Open] A Packet Level Simulation Environment for Edge Computing

This master thesis aims to design and develop a packet level simulator for edge computing based on existing network simulators such as NS3 or OMNeT++. Tentative tasks include (1) creating edge computing scenarios in network simulators, (2) tailoring cloud simulators for mobile devices, the edge, and the distant cloud, and (3) bridging the network simulator and the cloud simulator for a complete edge computing simulator. This thesis requires to perform many empirical tasks and thus, hands-on experience on network simulations can be gained.

[Ongoing] Dynamic Configuration of IoT Environments

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing at rapid speed. In the near future, the Internet of connected “things” will largely outnumber the humans who are currently using the Web. Industry estimates show that 30-50 Billion things will be connected to the Internet by 20201. For companies such as Siemens, the IoT concept plays a tremendous role for their ongoing evolution towards full digitalization, since possible applications range from smarter cities and eHealth systems, to Industry 4.0. Another example of such a business application for IoT are building automation systems, which will transform into IoT environments, where the various components of a building infrastructure (e.g., lights, switches, shutters, AC, controllers, etc.) will be IoT-enabled. Hence, in this thesis, building automation systems will be taken as a use case example.

[Finished] Benchmarking System for Cloud-based, Distributed Learning Applications

The thesis will focus on design and implementation of a benchmarking platform for cloud-based machine learning applications.The benchmarking will be done by the platform in a systematic and automated way. The benchmarking system will be based on the HOBBIT benchmarking platform which is currently being developed as a part of HOBBIT EU project. The purpose of the project is to provide open benchmarking reports which can help EU industry to adopt Big Linked Data solutions . The contribution will extend HOBBIT to benchmark cloud-based application which is not the case at the moment.
