Short bio

Since 2014, Daniela Nicklas is full professor at the University of Bamberg, Germany, and holds the Chair of Computer Science, in particular Mobile Software Systems / Mobility. Before that, she was a junior professor for database and internet technologies at the Universität Oldenburg and member of the Member of Executive Board in the Transportation division at the OFFIS institute for computer science. She came there from a PostDoc position at the Universität Stuttgart (2006-2008) where she also obtained her PhD in 2005, working on the integration of large-scale spatial context models for mobile applications.

Her research interests are computer systems that bridge the gap between the physical world and the digital world. She focuses on the continuous management of data from sensors and other active data sources and their incorporation in so-called context-aware applications. Currently, she works on data stream management technologies. She applies these technologies to the domains of smart cities, smart factories, pervasive computing, intelligent transportation systems, and situational awareness in general. In 2009, she received the IBM Exploratory Stream Analytics Innovation Award for „Data Stream Technology for Future Energy Grid Control“. She is a member of many programme committees and organizing committees of pervasive computing and database conferences and workshops (e.g., PerCom, MDM, BTW, ...), and a member of the editorial board of the Datenbankspektrum (German Journal on Databases).
