"Semantic Technologies can be used in complex environments for supporting control and management operations on smart environments (IoT, M2M, E2E and CPS systems) and also cloud-based infrastructure and service systems, thus by means of Linked-Data techniques/methods interoperability is enabled"
Dr. Martin Serrano is Senior Research Fellow in the Insight Centre for Data Analytics at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI Galway). He is Guest Lecturer at SCU in Silicon Valley, Santa Clara Ca. USA. He also has Lectures at California State University, SLO, Ca, USA and TUB, Berlin and FBK-CREATE Net in Trento Italy. He holds a M.Sc. and a Ph.D. from the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC Tech), Spain. Prior to DERI he was a Researcher at the PI Team at the Telecommunications Software and Systems Group (TSSG) of the Waterford Institute of Technology in Waterford, Ireland (WIT) and Research Assistant at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC). Before joining academia, Dr. Serrano worked as Senior Engineer Supervisor at Panasonic-AKME at the Product Design Engineering department and was Research Intern at National/Panasonic-KME (Japan).
Dr. Serrano is a recognised expert on Semantic Interoperability for Distributed Systems and has also contributed to define the Data Interplay in Edge Computing using the Linked Data paradigm, in both works he has got awards for his Scientific Contributions/Publications. Dr. Serrano has advanced the state of the art on Pervasive Computing using Semantic data Modelling and Context Awareness methods to extend the "Autonomics" parading for networking systems. He also has contributed to enrich the Information and Knowledge Engineering area using Semantics and Ontologies for describing data and services relations in Autonomic Computing. Dr. Serrano is a pioneer and visionary on proposing that Semantic Technologies applied to Policy-based Management Systems can be used as an approach to produce cognitive applications capable of understanding, service and application events, controlling the pervasive services life cycle.
His research interests are on Distributed Systems, Security and Privacy, Ontology Engineering, Semantic Web, Linked Data and Information Modelling, Data Interoperability, Policy-Based Management, Autonomics (self-organization, and self-management.). Dr. Serrano is actively investigating Cloud Computing Services Management, Semantic-based Cloud Infrastructures Control and Big Data Management. He is also investigating Cyber-Physical Systems Control, Sensor Networks and The Internet of Things (IoT) and their large scale deployment using Cloud environments.
Dr. Serrano has published in international conferences (IEEE UIC, IEEE ICC, etc.), international journals (IEEE Wireless Magazine, IEEE Pervasive Computing, etc.) and several book chapters in the cited domains. He has served as reviewer of various high impact journals, including, IEEE Network Magazine, IEEE Transaction on Wireless Magazine, IEEE Transactions on Networks and Service Management, etc. He is author of the book Applied Ontology Engineering in Cloud Services, Networks and Management Systems edited by Springer Publishers 2013.
Dr. Serrano has experience on Technical and General Management levels of Irish National (HEA Futurecomm, SFI FAME) and European collaborative Projects (IST CONTEXT, IST AutoI, ICT OpenIoT, ICT OpenIoT-Enlarged, ICT Vital) and also Experiments in European Platforms (SSCFed4FIRE) and also as active research member for European Research Networks of Excellence (EMANICS, MAGIX, etc). He is an active member of IEEE(Computer and Communication Societies) and ACM.
