After graduating from the University of Luebeck with a M.Sc. in computer science, I joined the ITM as a research associate in July 2010. Since then my focus is on the smooth integration of the Internet resp. Web of Things with the common Internet resp World-Wide Web. Besides the network integration my research interest particularly includes data distribution and recovery in the IoT as well as data security.

SECON and SWANSITY 2015 (Seattle, USA)

In June 2015 I presented a poster about the Smart Service Proxy (SSP) at the conference "SECON 2015" in Seattle. As stated in the posters title the proxy is a "A Middlebox to realize a Semantic Web of Things". The poster was awarded the "best poster" at SECON 2015 and can be downloaded here.

Best Poster Award (SECON 2015) 

In a workshop (SWANSITY) which was co-located with the SECON, I also presented a case study that utilizes both, the simulation framework VASILI (implemented by Sebastian Ebers) and the SSP. For the case study we monitored urban traffic using Semantic Web Services on approx. 2500 (simulated) smartphones each of which is attached to one out of 2500 (simulated) vehicles.

iThings 2014 (Taipei, Taiwan)

In September 2014 I attended the iThings 2014 conference to present my IETF draft (proposed RFC) for CoAP Endpoint IdentificationThe poster that sums up both, the problem and the proposed solution can be downloaded here.

FIA 2013 (Dublin, Ireland)

In May 2013 I was in Dublin with some other partners of SPITFIRE to participate at the demo competition of the Future Internet Assembly. We demonstrated our approach to integrate the Internet of Things with the common Internet on network layer and with the Semantic Web on application layer. We presented a smart office buliding with rules to react on certain conditions (e.g. switch the AC on, when somebody enters the office and the outside temperature is more than 21°C). Such rules can easily be constructed by combining arbitrary different data sources from the Semantic Web (resp. linked data cloud), so home automation is just one item on a virtually endless list of thinkable usecases.

The visitors were asked to vote for the best demo via SMS. The SPITFIRE demo won the competition! The picture shows the trophy with some equipment for hurling, which is a very famous sport in Ireland.


Open Source Software Development

  • Smart Service Proxy:
    • Provides serialization format independet caching of semantic web resource descriptions (for a number of standard serialization formats like N3 or RDF/XML)
    • Enables the creation of semantic entities by using SPARQL and access to their status using the above mentioned technologies. Semantic entities as an outcome of the Spitfire-Project represent (even non-technolgical) everyday items like tables or rooms as webservices. Semantic entities mostly base on aggrgated sensor data but hide the complexity of programming resource constraint devices (like wireless sensor nodes) from the user.
  • JAVA implementation of CoAP (Constrained Application Protocoll)
