I joined the working group Computer Systems & Telematics (CST) at the Freie Universität Berlin as a member of the Scientific Staff in January 2006. I'm also affiliated to the Computational Science Laboratory at Microsoft Research in Cambridge.

Research



My research is in the area of Wireless Sensor Networks. I focus on software development support and system integration.


Projects



Autonomous Monitoring of Vulnerable Habitats

In close collaboration with the Oxford University and Microsoft Research, we have developed an innovative system that can autonomously monitor animals and their habitats. Using a combination of Wireless Sensor Network based on the ScatterWeb platform and innovative software we are able to intelligently gather data from remote locations, relaying it back for local storage and processing and allow remote reconfiguration of the network by research scientists.

More information about the project is available on the project hompeage.

 

Environmental Monitoring

In natural sciences, research often relies on extensive manual investigation. Such methods can be error-prone and obviously don’t scale well. The development of autonomous data acquisition systems based on Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) research has provides a method to significantly reduce the amount manual of work during field studies. It allows addressing of scientific questions that were previously infeasible.

Our research group gathered comprehensive experience in creating robust WSN based systems for environmental monitoring. In the recent years we worked in close collaboration with researchers from natural science area and together, we built and deployed a number of WSNs that run autonomously under real-world conditions.

More information about the project is available on the project hompeage.

 

Flow

Flow is a Software Factory for Wireless Sensors Networks (WSNs). Software Factories are model-driven development environments. Flow allows modeling of applications for WSNs with the help of a visual editor. Flow focuses on data-centric programming. The key component is the concept of a data flow that can be used to describe how data should be processed. Domain experts use a visual Domain-Specific Language (DSL) to define data flows and thus specify the behavior of nodes in the network. With Flow domain experts no longer need to develop or maintain native application code.

More information about the project is available on the project hompeage.

 

ScatterWeb .NET SDK

 

The ScatterWeb .NET SDK is a new approach to working with wireless sensor networks. It hides the complexity of embedded programming and offers easy to handle .NET objects that represent the wireless sensors.

The SDK won the BASTA-Award 2006: 1st place for the best .NET contribution from Germany, Austria, Switzerland.

More information about the ScatterWeb .NET SDK is available on the ScatterWeb .NET SDK homepage.

 

mPOLIKS

The Freie Universität Berlin and the Berlin Police Department are cooperation partners since 2006. Within the cooperation we are evaluating secure solutions for mobile data access to police records.
