Jun.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Kálmán Graffi
Computer Science
HHU

Professor Dr.-Ing. Kalman Graffi is junior professor for the ‘Technology of Social Networks’ in the Institute of Computer Science at the University of Duesseldorf in Germany. He obtained his doctorate degree (Dr.-Ing.) from the faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the Technische Universitaet Darmstadt in July 2010, and diplomas in Computer Science and Mathematics, both in 2006, at the same university.With his nine PhD students he concentrates his research on network protocols and mechanisms to support the freedom of speech and privacy around the globe. In specific he researches on a secure peer-to-peer framework for online social networks, on Android-based wireless mesh networks as well as on mechanisms for large-scale democratic argumentation and voting in the Internet. He is founding member of the ‘Duesseldorf Institute for Internet and Democracy’. He received several awards for his work on secure and decentralized communication platforms and their impact on society. In 2014, he was elected as member in the Arab-German Young Academy of Sciences and Humanities (AGYA) and in 2015 he was elected as ‘Junior Fellow’ of the Gesellschaft fuer Informatik, both for 5 years. In March 2015 he was awarded the title ‘Young Scientist of the Year 2014’ (Nachwuchswissenschaftler des Jahres 2014) by Academics.de.
Being in dialogue with political activists in the Arab word and outside, allows him to learn the requirements for secure decentralized communication platforms from first hand and to test his solutions in places where they are needed.
