Professor Thomas Kunz received his Diplom in Wirtschaftsinformatik in 1990 and his Dr.Ing. in Informatik in 1994, both from the Technische Hochschule Darmstadt, Germany. He is currently a full professor in the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada and visiting the Software Engineering Institute of East China Normal University, Shanghai, during his 2015/16 sabbatical. He heads the Mobile Computing Group, researching wireless network architectures (Manets. wireless mesh networks, and wireless sensor networks), network protocols (for example MAC, routing, localization, clock synchronization, and OoS support), and middleware layers for innovative applications, such as those that will define the IoT. He also collaborates closely with Canada’s Centre of Excellence in Next Generation Networks (CENGN), a consortium of industry, academic and research leaders dedicated to accelerating the commercialization of next generation communications solutions, with emphasis on Software-Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization. He has served on more than 70 TPCs of international conferences and workshops in the mobile and wireless domain and has collaborated extensively with both industry and government research labs. He is the author or coauthor of more than 220 technical papers and received a number of awards and best paper prizes. Professor Kunz is a senior member of both ACM and IEEE.
