Marc Emmelmann graduated summa cum laude from Technical University Berlin holding a Master of Science degree in Computer Engineering.

He currently works as a senior scientist for the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS). As a member of the Business Unit Software-based Networks (NGNI), he manages projects in the area of future 5G networks. His research focuses on future network architectures, cognitive systems for dynamic spectrum access and self-organization in high mobility wireless communication systems.

Marc was fomerly affiliated with the Technical University of Berlin, faculty of computer science and electrical engineering. As a member of the Telecommunication and Networks Group (TKN), his reaearch interest focused on seamless mobility support at lower OSI layers covering all aspects of the handover including novel approaches towards network discovery, handover decision, and link-layer reestablishment schemes.

He is an active member of the IEEE having served in several Technical Program Commitees as well as a reviewer for numerous conferences and journals. Marc established the IEEE 802.11 Task Group for Fast Initial Link Set-Up (TGai). Apart from leading this standardization task group, Marc actively monitors the IEEE standardization groups for Dynamic Spectrum Access (IEEE 1900 DySPAN).
