Jörg Ott holds the Chair for Connected Mobility at Technische Universität München in the Faculty of Informatics since August 2015. He is also Adjunct Professor at Aalto University, where he was Professor for Networking Technology with a focus on Protocols, Services, and Software in the Department of Communications and Networking(Comnet) in the School of Electrical Engineering at Aalto University from 2005 through 2015. From 1997 through early 2005, he was Assistant Professor in the Computer Networks group at the Universität Bremen and member of the Center for Computing Technologies (TZI). From 1992 through 1997 he worked as a research staff member with teaching responsibilities at TU Berlin. He received his Doctor in Engineering (Dr.-Ing.) in 1997 from Technische Universität Berlin.
His research interests are in network architectures, protocol design, and networked systems, from modeling to implementation. His current research areas include communication in challenged networks, particularly delay-tolerant/mobile opportunistic networking; adaptive real-time communication, information-centric networking, and network measurements. He is co-chair of the DTN Research Group in the IRTF. In the IETF, was co-chair of the MMUSIC working group from 1997 through 2009 and co-chaired the SIP working group from its foundation in 1999 to October 2002. Jörg co-founded Tellique Kommunikationstechnik GmbH (1998), which provided solutions for IP multicast-based content distribution and performance enhancements for satellite and other challenged networks; Lysatiq GmbH (2007), which provided solutions for disconnection tolerance and performance optimizations for challenged networks and mobile Internet access; Spacetime Networks Oy (2013), which provides software solutions for enabling networking (not just) in challenging industrial environments; and NeMu ("Networked Multimedia") Dialogue Systems Oy (also: callstats.io), which provides QoS and QoE monitoring and analysis for (interactive) (WebRTC-based) multimedia services.
Jörg is vice chair of IEEE Comsoc TCCC and is steering committee member of the ACM/ISOC Applied Networking Research Workshop (ANRW), the ACM CHANTS workshop, the ACM ICN conference, the IEEE Global Internet Symposium.
