Professor Saman Halgamuge



Dr.-Ing, Dipl.-Ing (Data Engineering/Electrical Engineering), TU Darmstadt


Data Engineering promotes an engineering approach to analyze big “imperfect” data by creating and using new algorithms such as Unsupervised Deep Learning, appropriate electronic hardware platforms and mechanical/mechatronic/chemical-based approaches to interrogate and acquire missing data or information. My research engages a comprehensive data engineering approach from sensors for data collection to data analytics and optimization.  This research has significant applications in Energy, Health, Agriculture and Business sectors and IoT applications.
