Short CV

I am an assistant professor (tenure track) at TU Graz, Institute for Technical Informatics and a scientist at Complexity Science Hub Vienna since 2017. I did my postdoctoral training at ETH Zurich in 2010-2016 working in the group headed by Prof. Lothar Thiele in the Computer Engineering and Networks Laboratory. Following my Bachelors in Applied Mathematics from the University of Kiev, Ukraine in 2002 and my Masters in Applied Computer Science from the University of Freiburg, Germany in 2004, I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Bonn, Germany in 2009 under the guidance of Prof. Pedro José Marrón. I received the 2010 CONET Ph.D. Academic Award for my thesis "Efficient Algorithms for Structuring Wireless Sensor Networks". My research focuses on developing, optimizing, and analyzing algorithms for cyber-physical systems and complex networks. I am interested in both theoretical beauty of algorithm engineering and in solving real-world challenges in environmental, social and industrial domains. I serve on program committees of international conferences. My publications have been accepted at top conferences and journals such as IEEE/ACM IPSN and ACM ToSN. I received a Best Paper Award at ACM/IEEE IPSN in 2011 and in 2015, and at IEEE PerCom in 2014.
