Olga Saukh is assistant professor at the Institute for Technical Informatics at the TU Graz (tenure track), and has been a member of the Complexity Science Hub Vienna since 2017. She did her postdoctoral training at the ETH Zurich 2010 to 2016 in the group headed by Lothar Thiele in the Computer Engineering and Networks Laboratory. Following her Bachelor in Applied Mathematics from the University of Kiev, Ukraine, in 2002, and her Master in Applied Computer Science from the University of Freiburg, Germany, in 2004, Olga received her PhD in Computer Science from the University of Bonn, Germany, in 2009 under the guidance of Pedro José Marrón.


For her thesis “Efficient Algorithms for Structuring Wireless Sensor Networks” Olga received the 2010 CONET PhD Academic Award. Her research focuses on developing, optimizing, and analyzing algorithms for cyber-physical systems and complex networks. She is interested in both the theoretical beauty of algorithm engineering as well as in solving real-world challenges in environmental, social and industrial domains. Olga serves on program committees of international conferences. Her publications have been accepted at top conferences and journals such as IEEE/ACM IPSN and ACM ToSN. Olga received a Best Paper Award at ACM/IEEE IPSN in 2011 and in 2015, and at IEEE PerCom in 2014.
