Frank Hessel works at the Secure Mobile Networking Lab and joined emergenCITY in April 2020. He holds a Master’s degree in Computer Science as well as Internet- and Web-Based Systems from TU Darmstadt.

Within emergenCITY, he is looking for ways to improve the security and reliability of Low-Power Wide-Area Networks (LPWANs) and the Internet of Things (IoT). Options for the decentralization of these usually Cloud-based infrastructures are then evaluated within Knowledge Base. Additionally, the eHUB provides the opportunity to experiment with Smart Home devices in context of crises.
