Julius Rückert is a research assistant at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of the Technische Universität Darmstadt since October 2011. He holds a bachelor and master degree in computer science as well as a Ph.D. in electrical engineering and information technology from TU Darmstadt. He currently works as researcher in the collaborative research centre “MAKI – Multi-Mechanism Adaptation for the Future Internet”. His work focuses on distributed software systems in the context of overlay-based video streaming, Software-Defined Networking, and cross-layer mechanisms combining both worlds.
