Christopher Cichiwskyj, M.Sc. has been working as a researcher and PhD student at the "Embedded Systems"  group of the University Duisburg-Essen since April 2015. He received his master's degree in "Angewandte Informatik" with a focus on distributed, reliable systems at the University Duisburg-Essen. He received his bachelor's degree in 2013 with a special focus on pervasive computing. He left our group in July 2021.
