Besondere Aufgaben

Vizepräsidentin für Studium und Lehre

Sichere hybride Mobilfunknetze

Hybride Mobilfunknetze, die unterschiedliche Zugangstechnologien (WLAN, GSM, UMTS, etc.) vereinigen, können Benutzern zukünftig eine bessere Netzabdeckung und höhere Datenraten bei geringeren Kosten bieten. Außerdem wird vorhandene Netzinfrastruktur effizienter genutzt. Besondere Herausforderungen für die Entwicklung hybrider Netze sind die Netzsicherheit und das nahtlose Weiterreichen der Verbindung (Handover) von einem Zugangsnetz zum anderen. Neuartige Handover-Methoden, um sichere Verbindungen in hybriden Netzen zu gewährleisten, werden verstärkt auf Ortsinformationen zugreifen. Dies bedarf einer schnellen und sicheren Lokalisierung, die die Privatsphäre der Nutzer/innen und die Vertraulichkeit ihrer Positionsdaten gewährleistet. Ziel sind höhere Datenraten, bessere Netzabdeckung und höhere Verbindungssicherheit bei kleineren Investitionskosten in zukünftigen Mobilfunknetzen.

Intelligent Transportation Systems

Diese Netze sollen auch eingesetzt werden in „Intelligent Transportation Systems“ (ITS), also der Kommunikation in und mit unterschiedlichen Transportmitteln. So sind Handover bei großer Geschwindigkeit der Nutzer/innen, z.B. in einem Hochgeschwindigkeitszug, ein weiteres meiner Forschungsthemen. Hier sollen maßgeschneiderte Netze zur drahtlosen Anbindung der Transportmittel bereitgestellt werden.

Hauptsächlich halte ich die folgenden Module, darüber hinaus auch gelegentlich Grundlagen der Elektrotechnik 1-3 und Grundlagen der Elektrotechnik für Maschinenbaustudiengänge.
