Rodrigues Profile Pic

About

Bruno Rodrigues received his doctoral degree from the University of Zurich, in 2020, at the Communication Systems Group under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Burkhard Stiller, with a thesis entitled BloSS. Previously, he obtained his master's degree in 2016 at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, with a dissertation entitled GreenSDN.  He co-authored 3 patents and published a number of papers and journals in related IEEE networking conferences (e.g., IEEE/IFIP NOMS, IEEE/IFIP IM, IEEE LCN) and leading IEEE journals (IEEE TSNM, IEEE Communications Magazine). Further, he is actively contributing to the scientific community by actively reviewing papers and journals. He currently focuses his cybersecurity research and wireless networks focused on passive tracking systems.
