Davy Preuveneers

I'm a research expert at the University of Leuven in the DistriNet research group. My research interests are in the field of event-based systems for ubiquitous computing and Internet of Things applications, middleware support for context-driven services, identity management, media and e-health applications.

I received my Master's degree in Computer Science from the KU Leuven, Belgium, in 2002, and my Master's degree in Artificial Intelligence in 2003 from the same university. In 2009, I received a Ph.D. degree in computer science with a thesis entitled "Support for context-driven applications in Ambient Intelligence environments" at the Department of Computer Science of the KU Leuven. I am and have been involved in several national and European research projects, including the H2020 EXCELL project, FP7 BUTLER project, the ITEA project "LOMS" (Local Mobile Services) that received the ITEA 2008 Gold Achievement Award.
