The areas of research I am currently interested in are (in no particular order):

  • Multimedia Transport Protocols
  • Congestion Control and TCP-friendliness for Multimedia Flows
  • Wireless and Ad-Hoc Networking
  • Application Level Multicast
  • Consistency in Replicated Multimedia Systems
  • Distributed Interactive Media (e.g., shared whiteboard systems and networked computer games)
  • Ubiquitous Computing

Curriculum vitae

From late 1991 to early 1997 I studied Wirtschaftsinformatik (a combination of computer science and business administration) at the University of Mannheim. At the end of that time I had a one year stay at the Internation Computer Science Institute (ICSI) Berkeley, which is affiliated with the University of California Berkeley (UCB). During my visit I wrote a masters thesis on "Protocol Enhancement and Compression for X-Based Application Sharing".

In 1997 I received my diploma in Wirschaftsinformatik and was awarded the prize for the best graduate of the semester.

From mid 1997 on I worked on my Ph.D. Thesis in Computer Science about "Distributed Interactive Media". My work was supported through a Ph.D. grant of SIEMENS. I completed my thesis at the University of Mannheim by mid 2000.

Since that time I am a wissenschaflicher Assistent (comparable to an assistant professor) at the University of Mannheim.
