With focus on Quality of Experience
Professor Markus Fiedler (MFI), born 1967, received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering with focus on information and communication technology from Saarland University, Saarbrücken, Tyskland, in 1998. Since then, he has been employed at Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH), where he became senior lecturer within teletraffic systems in 2000, docent in 2006 and professor of teletraffic systems in 2011, respectively.
He is now with the Dept. of Technology and Aesthetics (DITE), where he is research, main area and internationalisation responsible for the media technology programs (Digital visual production, Digital sound production, and Design of digital and immersive experiences).
Starting from teletraffic-related questions (such as dimensioning of communication links), his research was extended to user-perceived Quality of Experience (QoE) of applications and services. He has been strongly involved in the development of the QoE area as co-organiser of three Dagstuhl Seminars and one Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshop, and he is specifically interested in sustainability issues related to ICT and QoE.
He has been active in the research profile BigData@BTH, with a specific interest in the application of machine learning to the QoE domain. He is active in the KKS synergy project ViaTecH, with specific focus on timing within Virtual Reality (VR) systems. In teaching, he is passionate about quality issues and evaluation as a natural part of design processes for sound, image and immersive experiences (towards “QoE By Design“).
