Junior Dongo has joined the Department of Computer Science, Aalborg University as Postdoctoral Researcher in the Distributed, Embedded and Intelligent Systems group.
Junior Dongo received his Bachelor’s degree in computer science from the University of Luxembourg and his Master’s degree in the same field from the University of Paris-Est, from where he also completed his PhD studies earlier this year.
Describe your area and research interests?
- In short, my research interests revolve around big data, distributed systems, cloud computing, Internet of Things, system modelling and verification. My PhD was entitled “Native Support for Parallel and Distributed Computing by the Network”, and during my studies, I have worked with Named Data Networking (NDN) Architecture. I proposed a new big data architecture based on this network architecture, namely a Distributed File System and a Computation Distribution approach. I have used UPPAAL to perform formal specification and verification and to model the system.
Which current projects are you going to work on?
- I am involved in a number of projects which deal with different aspects of energy and flexibility management (DoMOS and FED project)
Why did you choose to continue your career at Aalborg University?
- I am interested in both academia and industry. The different projects here combine both aspects and have some industrial partners, so it’s a great opportunity for me. Also, having been working with UPPAAL for modelling and verification, I found interesting to come to the source of the software to learn more about it and to have a chance to collaborate with the instigators of such a great tool.
