My research interests include the following topics:
- Quality of Experience (QoE) of Internet applications
- QoE-aware and socially-aware network traffic management solutions
- Measurements and analytics of (encrypted) network traffic
- Group-based communication
- Monitoring, orchestration, and consolidation of edge cloud computing services
- Performance analysis and modeling of communication systems

Currently, I am involved in the following teaching activities:
- Simulation Techniques for Performance Evaluation (Simulationstechnik zur Systemanalyse, SS 19)
- Bachelor Theses
- Master Theses
- Practical Courses
Topics for Bachelor Theses, Master Theses, or Practical Courses can be requested at any time. A (non exhaustive) list of open topics can also be found here: Open Theses. On demand, these topics can/will also be updated, customized, and/or adjusted towards the specific requirements of the student (e.g., a part of a Master Thesis topic can be covered as a Bachelor Thesis), or there can be additional topics. Please note that the availability of open topics is intended, but cannot be guaranteed. If you are interested in my research topics, simply contact me.
