Moin and Servus!#
My name is Cenk Gündoğan, and I am currently a senior researcher at the Huawei Research Center in Munich, Germany focusing on connectivity and networking solutions for Industrie 4.0 and the industrial IoT.
My previous research background is in (i) IoT connectivity and (ii) information-centric networking (ICN). I worked as a research assistant at the Internet Technologies research group within the projects I3 and PIVOT, both funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Supervised by Prof. Dr. Matthias Wählisch and Prof. Dr. Thomas Schmidt, I obtained my doctorate (Dr. rer. nat.) from FU Berlin.
I follow these working and research groups: 6lo, roll, core, lpwan, detnet, icnrg, t2trg. In the past, I also participated in several IETF hackathons and in previous editions of Bits-n-Bites to showcase low-power implementations of networking protocols on embedded hardware using the RIOT IoT operating system.
In 2021, I picked up photography as a creative outlet during the COVID-19 pandemic. I use a Sony a7c full-frame mirrorless camera, and quite often my 85mm f/1.8 and 14mm f/1.8 lenses. I shoot in RAW format and enjoy editing my shots with the open source photography workflow application darktable.
I have always enjoyed a restorative walk in the nature. Now that I live in Munich, I started exploring hiking trails and routes in the Bavarian Alps 1-2 times per month.
