Dr. Christian Lochert


From late 1997 to early 2003 I studied Wirtschaftsinformatik, a combination of computer science and business administration, at the University of Mannheim. During this time I worked at the NEC Europe Network Laboratories in Heidelberg. In April 2003 I received a Diploma degree in Information Systems (Dipl. Wirtsch.-Inf.).

I received my doctoral degree from the Heinrich Heine University in November 2008. The title of my thesis was "Avoiding the Gridlock - Information Dissemination in Vehicular Networks".
