Dr.-Ing. Vlado Handziski


I am senior researcher at TKN, coordinating the research and teaching activities of the group in the areas of networked embedded systems, internet of things and cyber-physical systems.

During the winter semesters 2014/2015 and 2016/2017 I was adjunct/interim professor at the Chair for Embedded Systems at TU Dresden.

I received my doctoral degree in Electrical Engineering from TU Berlin (summa cum laude, 2011) and my M.Sc. degree from Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje (2002).

I have participated and led research activities in more than ten projects with external funding, at European, national and local level and have contributed to international standardization activities in the area of evaluation of indoor localization systems.

My research focus lies on developing platform solutions and system abstractions for wireless networked embedded systems and cloud-supported Internet of Things (IoT) as well as their application in specific application domains like industrial automation and indoor localization. In my research methodology, prototyping, experimental work and testbeds play a central role. I was chief architect of the popular TWIST testbed and one of the core developers of TinyOS.

Professional Activities

As an active member of the academic community, I have participated in the organization committees or served in the technical program committees of a number of events, including leading conferences in sensor systems like IPSN and EWSN. I am regularly reviewing submissions to top international journals and magazines from IEEE, ACM, Elsevier and Springer. My professional activities also involved participation in standardization efforts lead by DIN and NIST and in various topical work groups.
