I am an associate professor (tenured) at Department of Computer Science at School of Science, Aalto University, Finland. I am leading the AaltoSEA Group on Systems and Services Engineering Analytics. I am also a Priv.-Doz. (Adjunct Associate Professor) at the Faculty of Informatics, TU Wien. I received a PhD (2005) and a Habilitation (2013) from TU Wien, Austria. Before taking the current position, I had been with TU Wien as a senior researcher/assistant professor and Priv.Doz. (2007-2019), 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 AaltoSEA Group on Systems and Services Engineering Analytics. My research is in the field of distributed systems and large-scale software systems. My main research interest focuses novel techniques and methods for Software, Data and Services Systems. 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 industrial consulting activities and knowledge transfer in my core expertise. My consulting activities, including training, are cloud technologies, IoT platforms, and big data analytics, IoT networking and services in 5G, and digital transformation for enterprises. I am also a scientific advisor for LARION and a co-founder of I & A Computing Lab.
