On September 1st 2022, I have joined the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in Guangzhou –
. HKUST is a world-class internationally-minded research university that was founded in 1991 in Clear Water Bay, Hong Kong, with a track record of excellent research and teaching.

In 2022, HKUST has opened a new campus in Guangzhou, across the border in China's Guangdong province:

The new campus is complementing HKUST's existing Clear Water Way campus and is intended for developing new cross-disciplinary programs, in four hubs:

  • Information Hub: to address global challenges arising from human interactions with information and technology in today's era of digital transformation.
  • Function Hub to focuss on basic elements in hard and natural sciences, and to seek advanced and sustainable solutions to address real-world problems.
  • Systems Hub: to develop scientific knowledge, offering engineering methodologies, and to solve cross-disciplinary problems, e.g., in Bioscience & Biomedical Engineering.
  • Society Hub: to resolve socio-economic issues and contribute to the knowledge economy in a networked society and rapidly changing world.

I am working in the Internet of Things Thrust, led by Prof. Danny Tsang, of the Information Hub, led by Prof. Fugee Tsung. The other Thrusts in the Information Hub are:

My research focus will be on:

  • Distributed Computing and Networking (Compute-First Networking, Computing in the Network)
  • Information-Centric Networking (ICN)
  • Internet architecture and decentralized communication

If you are interested in joining HKUST(GZ) as faculty, postdoc, postgraduate, or MPhil student please feel free to reach out to me. My e-mail address at HKUST: dku@ust.hk

Affiliation Update

Hello everyone,

After 7.5 years in NEC Laboratories Europe, I have decided to take on a new challenge and joined Huawei’s German Research Center in Munich as the CTO for Virtual Networking and IP on October 1st 2016.

I am grateful for NEC’s support of my work in the past and especially for the colleagueship at NEC Labs Europe and NEC Corporation and for being given the opportunity for working with so many cool people.

I have now decided to move on and am looking forward to working with new colleagues (and esteemed collaborators) on topics that are close to my heart: evolving the Internet, embracing computer science, data centricity, distributed computing, programmability and automation.

With the Internet of Things, the next-generation of mobile networks being developed, the possibilities of experimenting with new concepts thanks to virtualization and programmability, redesigning network function platforms and overall architectures, and with applying recent work in machine learning, I am really excited to explore and experiment with new ideas and new tools in networking.

Are you interested in making a dent in networking? Come work with me in Munich. Do you want to collaborate in research and Open Source projects? Please feel to contact me at Dirk.Kutscher@Huawei.com.
