Dipl.-Ing. Paul Schwenteck

PhD Researcher

Paul Schwenteck received his Diploma in Electrical Engineering at the TU Dresden, Germany, in 2020 and is now a Ph.D. student at the Chair of Communication Networks involved in the groundbreaking 6G-life project. With a strong passion for cutting-edge technologies, his research focuses on Information-Centric Networking (ICN) and distributed caching protocols, such as the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS).

Driven by curiosity and a desire to push the boundaries of network architectures, he delves deep into the realm of ICN, exploring its potential to revolutionize data communication in the future. In addition to his expertise in ICN and distributed caching protocols, he are also actively investigates the energy consumption of such protocols. By examining the energy implications of these innovative protocols, he seeks to develop sustainable and energy-efficient solutions for future communication networks. His work aims to strike a balance between technological advancements and environmental considerations, ensuring that the benefits of ICN and distributed caching are coupled with responsible energy consumption.

Combining academic rigor with practical application, he works diligently to contribute valuable insights to the field of 6G-life, striving to shape the future of communication networks while addressing the critical issue of energy sustainability.

Research Interest

My scholarly pursuits are rooted in enhancing the resilience and efficiency of distributed storage systems through the innovative application of network coding. I am particularly fascinated by the transformative potential of network coding to significantly bolster the robustness and performance of storage mechanisms, ensuring more reliable and scalable data storage solutions.

Parallel to this, I am devoted to the advancement of Information-Centric Networking (ICN) protocols, with a special focus on the Internet Protocol File System (IPFS) and Named Data Networking (NDN). My research aims at refining these protocols to optimize data retrieval processes, improve data dissemination efficiency, and strengthen the overall resilience of distributed networks. Through my work, I strive to contribute to the evolution of ICN, making it a cornerstone for the next generation of internet architecture, where content accessibility and network efficiency are paramount.
