Talks and Demonstrations


During my time as research associate at Paderborn University, I was involved into a couple of classes and supervised multiple student project groups, student research assistants, as well as a series of Bachelor and Master theses.

  • WS15/16: Exercises of the "distributed systems" class (bachelor)
  • WS16/17: Exercises of the "distributed systems" class (bachelor)
Supervised student projects:

Student project groups are part of the computer science program (Master) at Paderborn University. In a project group, up to 14 master students work on a research topic over a period of one year. I supervised three of these project groups:

  • SS15-WS15/16: DECaF - DistributEd Cloud Functions
  • SS16-WS16/17: SanDMAN - Service Development and Management for softwAre-defined Networks
  • SS19-WS19/20: BAcKFLiP - Benchmarking network functions to collect the world's largest NFV performance dataset

In addition to this, I supervised 5 student research assistants between 2016 and 2020.

Supervised Bachelor and Master theses:

I supervised a total of 9 Bachelor theses and 3 Master theses between 2016 and 2020. The theses were investigating different topics ranging from practical cloud computing and NFV problems to machine learning approaches for performance prediction.
