Stephan Sigg

Stephan Sigg is an Assistant Professor at Aalto University in the Department of Communications and Networking. From October 2013 to September 2015, he was with the Computer Networks Group of Georg-August-University Goettingen. Before, he was a researcher at TU-Braunschweig and an academic guest in the Wearable Computing Lab at ETH Zurich and in the Nodes laboratory at University of Helsinki. From December 2010 to March 2013, Stephan was with the National Institute of Informatics (NII), in the Information systems architecture research division. He was a visiting Professor for Distributed and Ubiquitous Systems at the TU Braunschweig in the winter term 2010 and a PostDoc researcher at the chair for Pervasive Computing Systems (TecO) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in 2010 and a PostDoc researcher at the chair for Distributed and Ubiquitous Systems at the TU Braunschweig from 2008 to 2010. He obtained his PhD (Dr. rer. nat.; 2008) from University of Kassel where he was with the chair for Communication Technology (ComTec) from 2005 to 2007.
His research interests include the design, analysis and optimisation of algorithms for distributed and ubiquitous systems. Recently he has considered problems related to context prediction, collaborative transmission in Wireless sensor networks, context-based secure key generation, device-free passive activity recognition and computation of functions in wireless networks at the time of transmission.
