My name is Dr. Frank Gut (former Doelitzscher). I have been a PhD student at the Centre for Security, Communications and Network Research at Plymouth University (GB) and the Cloud Research Lab at University of Applied Sciences Furtwangen, Germany. My research interests are in the area of security and cloud computing. Please contact me if you are interested in our work! You can also find more information of our past and current projects on our cloud website.

Currently I work in System Integration for Autonomous Driving vehicles. Visit our web page for more information: Urban Automated Driving

Research & Publication

I did my PhD research in the field of security for Cloud Computing environments. Now I am involved in data quality, security and autonomous driving.

Please see my Research page for further details. You will also find some conferences I organized there. A full publication list can be found under Publication.
