Václav Struhár, Doctoral student

I am a doctoral student at Mälardalen University. I received a bachelor's degree from the Faculty of Applied Sciences at the University of West Bohemia (2010), Czech Republic, and my master's degree in Computer Science at Mälardalen University (2015). I worked as a software developer at IBM and Vodafone Group.

Currently, I am working on resource management for fog computing with a focus on container-based virtualization and real-time orchestration of containers. I am part of the FORA-Fog Computing for Robotics and Industrial Automation European Training Network (ETN) project.
