Dominik Kaspar received his M.S. degree in computer science from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich, in 2005. From 2003 to 2005, he worked as a guest researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), where he wrote his Master's thesis on the application of antenna arrays and beamforming for indoor localization systems. After a year of environmental civil service and web-application development in Switzerland, he joined the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) in Daejeon, Korea, where he was involved in standardization of next generation mobile and sensor networks. From February 2008 until April 2011, he was employed as a researcher and Ph.D. student at the Simula Research Laboratory.

- M.Sc. in Computer Science from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich (1999 - 2003).
- Researcher at the Protocol Engineering Center (PEC) of the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) in Daejeon, South Korea (2007).
- Guest researcher at the Advanced Network Technologies Division (ANTD) of the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA (2003 - 2005).
Current Research Interests
- Multipath aggregation: simultaneous communication over multiple physical network interfaces may significantly boost the performance of data transfer, both in terms of speed and robustness.
- Packet reordering: due to the severe heterogeneity of wireless links, sending data of the same ﬂow over multiple paths causes the reordering of packets. It is a great challenge to develop mechanisms that are able to reduce this negative effect of splitting traffic over multiple paths.
