Prof. Dr. Christian Bettstetter
Principal Investigator

Christian Bettstetter is professor and head of the Networked and Embedded Systems institute at the University of Klagenfurt. He is also scientific director and founder of Lakeside Labs GmbH, a research and innovation cluster on self-organizing networked systems. He studied electrical engineering and information technology at the Technische Universität München (TUM), receiving the Dipl.-Ing. degree in 1998. After a research stay at the University of Notre Dame, Christian joined the institute of communication networks at TUM, where he was a research and teaching staff member until 2003. His doctoral thesis on mobility modeling, connectivity, and adaptive clustering in wireless ad hoc networks was awarded the Dr.-Ing (summa cum laude) degree in 2004. Before becoming a professor, Christian was a senior researcher at DoCoMo Euro-Labs for two years.

Dr. Udo Schilcher
PostDoc Researcher

Udo Schilcher studied applied computing and mathematics at the University of Klagenfurt, where he received two Dipl.-Ing. degrees with distinction (2005, 2006). Since 2005, he was research staff member at the Institute of Networked and Embedded Systems at the University of Klagenfurt. His doctoral thesis on inhomogeneous node distributions and interference correlation in wireless networks and has been awarded with a Dr. techn. degree with distinction in 2011. After his graduation, from 2011 he was Post-Doc, again at the Institute of Networked and Embedded Systems at the University of Klagenfurt. Since 2016 he is senior researcher at Lakeside Labs GmbH. His main interests are interference dynamics and spatial node distributions in wireless networks, and stochastic geometry. He reveived a best paper award from the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society.

Dr. Jorge F. Schmidt
PostDoc Researcher

Jorge Schmidt graduated from Electronics Engineering at the Universidad Nacional del Sur, Argentina, in 2005 with orientation on telecommunications. From 2006 to 2011, he worked towards his doctoral degree, investigating the use of adaptive and statistical signal processing techniques in multicarrier wireless networks. From 2012 he was with the University of Vigo, Spain, until he joined the Institute of Networked and Embedded Systems group at the University of Klagenfurt, Austria, in 2014. Since 2016. He is currently also a Senior Researcher at Lakeside Labs GmbH, Austria. His research interests are in interference modeling and management in wireless systems. He received a best paper award from the ACM SIGSIM.

Agata Barciś
PhD Student

Agata Barciś obtained her Master's degree in control engineering and robotics at the Wrocław University of Science and Technology. After studies, she worked at Telic AG as an embedded software developer. Since 2017 she is pursuing a Ph.D. degree in the Karl Popper School on Networked Autonomous Aerial Vehicles at the University of Klagenfurt. Her research is focused on self-organizing coordination of multi-robot systems in space and time.

Arke Vogell
PhD Student

Arke Vogell studied physics at Leibniz University Hanover and graduated there with a Master's degree in 2016. His thesis was written in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-organization in Göttingen, studying synchronization phenomena of continuously and non-locally coupled oscillators. From 2016 to 2018 he worked at Lakeside Labs GmbH as Junior researcher in an FFG-funded project on drone navigation in heavily cluttered outdoor environments. Since 2018 he is working on synchronization in (stochastically) pulse coupled oscillator networks as university assistant at University of Klagenfurt.
