Ph.D., Georgia Institute of Technology, May 2004

Diplom-Ingenieur, University of Technology Vienna, June 1998


My research interests span areas such as distributed real-time systems, resource management (e.g., energy management), wireless/mobile networks, wireless sensor networks, vehicular networks, smart phone apps, and pervasive healthcare applications and systems. I direct the Mobile Computing Lab (M-Lab), where we focus on projects such as healthcare technologies, wireless real-time communication, publish/subscribe for mobile/wireless environments, resource-efficient broadcast in ad-hoc networks, configurable and customizable QoS routing techniques, experimental test beds for mesh and sensor networks, in-network processing, and context-aware ubiquitous computing. Our group's research is funded through grants by NSF (including a 2006 CAREER award), Office of Naval Research, Army Research Office, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Motorola (Motorola Labs and Motorola Foundation), IBM (including a 2008 IBM Real-time Innovation Award), Toyota InfoTechnology Center, and Serim Research Corporation. Further, our lab has received hardware donations from Intel Corporation, Motorola Labs, Sprint, and Google.

Engineers Win McCloskey Business Plan Competition

May 1, 2013

In a close contest among six finalists, Contect emerged as the winner of the $25,000 McCloskey Business Plan Competition grand prize. Christian Poellabauer and Patrick Flynn, faculty members in computer science, presented their technology for a new, instantaneous, accurate concussion assessment tool that will be particularly helpful in detecting concussions in soldiers and athletes. The service captures an individual’s voice and detects subtle changes that may indicate a concussion.
