List of publications

Georg is a postdoc with Geert Leus, funded by an Erwin Schrödinger Fellowship from FWF Austria. The topic of his research is "Distributed Dynamic Self-Localization in Self-Organizing Wireless Networks"; the goal is to design fully distributed (decentralized, collaborative) information processing algorithms for localization and tracking of the network nodes, i.e., for dynamic self-localization.

Georg received the PhD degree in January 2012. He was a PhD student with Prof. Franz Hlawatsch (TU Vienna, Austria) on the topic of Bayesian detection and estimation with structural constraints. Herein, he considered detection/estimation of sparse sequences under a minimum distance constraint that enforces a prescribed minimum distance between successive nonzero elements of the sequence. Applications include layer detection in optical coherence tomography, medical imaging, seismology, and multipath parameter estimation. Other work includes blind deconvolution, UWB multipath parameter estimation, and ECG delineation.

Prior to coming to Delft, Georg was a postdoctoral researcher at TU Vienna and EPFL (Lausanne), and had several short visits to Graz University of Technology (Austria), University of Toulouse (France), and ETH Zürich (Switzerland).
