I am a Priv.-Doz. and an Assistant Professor at Research Division of Distributed Systems, Faculty of Informatics, TU Wien, since 2013. I am also an associate professor at Department of Computer Science at School of Science, Aalto University, Finland. I am leading the Service Engineering Analytics team in Distributed Systems at TU Wien. I received a PhD (2005) and a Habilitation (2013) from TU Wien, Austria. Before taking the current position, I was a senior researcher at TU Wien (2007-2013), a post-doc researcher at University of Innsbruck (2005-2007), a researcher at University of Vienna (2000-2005) and an assistant lecturer at BachKhoa University (1998-2000). I have been visiting professors at Bach Khoa University (2016, 2017), HCMC, Vietnam, Da Nang University of Science Technology (2016), and (short-term) visiting scholars at University of Southern California (Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things, Sep 2017) the University of California, Irvine (July-Aug, 2017), the Japan National Institute of Informatics (NII) (2017), University of Chicago (2016), Shenzhen University (2016), Lund University (2014), and University of Stuttgart (2010).
I am currently leading the Service Engineering Analytics team. My research is in the field of distributed systems and distributed computing. My main research interest focuses Software, Data and Service Engineering Analytics. Main sub-areas of my research are: Monitoring, Analysis and Optimization Techiques for Programs, Data and Systems; Parallel, Grid and Cloud Computing, and IoT; Data Service Models and Analytics; Socio-technical Services Engineering; and Elastic Computing. Furthermore, i am interested in (free) ICT solutions for (under) developing countries.
My teaching is focused on advanced research-oriented topics with a strong emphasis on learning through the development and implementation of projects and new ideas. I am interested in working with teams of colleagues and students from multi-cultural background. I also like helping students from developing countries with a hope that they eventually would play a major role in transforming the education systems in their countries.
My contribution to practice is through my consulting activities and knowledge transfer in my core expertise. My consulting activities, including training, are through RDSEA Technology for cloud technologies, IoT platforms, and big data analytics, and through iParacel Technology for IoT Networking. Currently, I am a scientific advisor for LARION and a co-founder of I & A Computing Lab.
