About Me

I've started working at the Distributed Systems Group as a research assistant in 2017, and have been employed as a PhD student since spring of 2020. My research focuses primarily on ad-hoc wireless networks with a particular emphasis on resilient disaster communications.

I am also a member of the emergenCITY project, where I work under Professor Freisleben in the Communications Group (KOM).

As programming languages are concerned, I work mostly in Python and Go.

Dynamic Role Assignment in Software-Defined Wireless Networks

Software-defined networking paradigms have found their way into wireless edge networks, allowing network slicing, mobility management, and resource allocation. This paper presents dynamic role assignment as a novel approach tosoftwaredefined network topology management for wireless edgedevices, such as laptops, tablets and smartphones. It combines the centralized control of wireless Network Interface Controller (NIC) modes with Network Function Virtualization (NFV) to integrate network topology transitions as well as network serviceand application service placement within a single mechanism.
