Academic Career and Research Areas

The research interests of Professor Kellerer (b. 1970) include methods and systems for mobile and fixed communication networks as an infrastructure for future Internet communication. His research work focuses primarily on concepts for the dynamic control of network infrastructure (Software Defined Networking) and traffic management, as well as on the support of emerging applications such as Smart Grid and e-Mobility.

After studying electrical engineering and information technology at TUM, he obtained his PhD from the same university in 2002. Following a period as a visiting researcher at Stanford University, California, USA, he joined NTT DOCOMO’s European Research Institute (DOCOMO Euro-Labs) where he most recently served as the head of the Wireless Communication and Networking Research Department. Professor Kellerer has been a full professor at TUM since July 2012. Professor Kellerer is a senior member of IEEE.
