I am the managing director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS) and a full professor for Open Distributed Systems at the Technical University of Berlin (TU Berlin).  I am also a research professor at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) where I was the Vice-Director of the  Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI) for 8 years and a stream leader in INSIGHT, the Irish National Data Analytics Centre.

My research interests are: 

  • Linked Data streams
  • Semantic sensor networks
  • Sensor networks middleware
  • Large-scale semantics-enabled distributed information systems and applications
  • Peer-to-peer systems
  • Internet of things
  • Self-organization and self-management
  • Service-oriented architectures
  • Distributed systems security

Developing Semantic Reality ("connecting the physical and virtual worlds") is currently my core research interest which combines my work in sensor networks, semantics, and peer-to-peer. As part of this we develop approaches for processing Linked Streams (CQELS). Our Linked Stream Middleware site provides a nice demo for this.

You may also be interested to try out our Global Sensor Networks (GSN) middleware for zero-programming deployment of sensor networks.

Many of my research results in these areas are incorporated in our P-Grid peer-to-peer system.

Google Scholar gives an idea which of my papers are highly cited. Another list of publications is maintained by DBLP.
