Elke Michlmayr, PhD
I defended my thesis on Dec 21th 2007. You can find it here. I am now on long long well-deserved vacation before moving to London in March to join Google as a Software Engineer. This page is not updated anymore, but you can still reach me at email@example.com.
Elke Michlmayr was born in Linz, Austria, in 1976. In 2002, she received
the MSc degree (with distinction) in Computer Science from Vienna University
of Technology. From 2001 to 2003, she has been with Telecommunications
Research Center Vienna (ftw.),
working as a researcher in project "UMTS Application Development".
Since Summer 2003, she is a PhD student at the Women's Postgraduate
College for Internet Technologies (WIT). She likes traveling, swimming, politics,
eating and drinking, reading, and heating with wood. Click

I am interested in Web Engineering, Distributed Systems, and Algorithms. My master's thesis dealt with content delivery for location-based
services. The title of my PhD thesis is "Ant Algorithms for Self-Organization in Social Networks". In my thesis I am applying ant algorithms for two tasks. One of them is content-based search in peer-to-peer networks. An abstract of this work can be found here. The second task is learning of adaptive user profiles from tagging data. More information can be found here.
The courses I taught in the past can be found here.
