About me

Introducing myself

My name is Abdulbaki Uzun, I am 36 years old and for more than ten years I have been happily married. I have two kids, who became the center of my life.

I received my Master's degree in Computer Engineering from the Berlin Institute of Technology in March 2010. My major field of study was in the area of Business IT at the department Systems Analysis and IT where I have also completed a Systems Analysis project at Motorola Inc. with an outstanding performance. At the same time, I was very interested in Open Communication Systems, which was closely connected to my research activities at Fraunhofer FOKUS.

In my previous student job at the Fraunhofer IZM, I learned a lot about modeling and simulation of power semiconductor modules, especially about how to proceed in scientific research projects. The development of E-Learning tools for the course Project-oriented laboratory as well as the design of a knowledge database for Motorola Inc. widened my knowledge in web programming, scripting, and databases. My tasks as a web developer at Nokia Siemens Networks consisted of the maintenance and implementation of intranet sites and web tools as well as tools and shell scripts under UNIX. Lastly, I was engaged as a student research assistant at Fraunhofer FOKUS where I have worked on future enhancements for the SMART Recommendations Engine and the integration of it in several projects. Within this context, I wrote my Master thesis with the topic Using a Semantic Multidimensional Approach to create a Contextual Recommender System.

Deutsche Telekom was always part of my academic and professional career. Due to my student job in the Event Management team of Telekom Innovation Laboratories, I gained immense insight about how public relations work in an enterprise. At Fraunhofer FOKUS, I was highly involved in projects with the Deutsche Telekom. I was also one of 60 students all over Europe, who took part in the talent recruiting event Talents in Touch 2009 in Barcelona. After the workshops, I received positive feedback confirming my leadership and team skills.

In April 2010, I have joined Telekom Innovation Laboratories again; this time as a research scientist at the department Service-centric Networking led by Prof. Dr. Axel Küpper. During my work, I gained a lot of knowledge in the areas of Semantic Web and Linked Data, Mobile and Context-aware Computing, Recommender Systems as well as Green ICT. I have been actively working in the projects Communicate Green as well as Context Data Cloud and also have been managing our activities within those projects. By doing so, I have established the open data platform OpenMobileNetwork that collects mobile network and WiFi access point topology data via crowdsourcing and publishes this data according to the principles of Linked Data. Furthermore, I am highly involved in the acquisition of new projects. Communicate Green, TRESOR, Context Data Cloud, and FlashPoll, for example, are projects that were mainly acquired by me. Moreover, I have been chosen as a candidate of the Software Campus 2013 program that integrates leading research and practical management experience in order to create top managers and entrepreneurs with an excellent IT background.
