Chair Professor in Communication Networks, TU Braunschwieg
Prior to that ,she was research faculty member at the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS), University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (UIUC) and Georgia Tech (GaTech). Admela received her Dr.tech. degree (cum laude) in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Technische Universitat Wien, the M.Sc. degree in Information Technologies from the Politecnico di Milano, Italy, and her Dipl. -Ing. degree from the Fakultet Elektrotehnike i Racunarstva (FER), in Zagreb, Croatia.
Since 2015, Prof. Jukan has been actively working in the combined domains of computer engineering and veterinary medicine, where together with her collaborators, she has been studying the suitability of smart computing and sensing systems that assume presence of networking, big data analytics, pervasive connectivity and computing, and, more recently, the artificial intelligence (AI) to serving the welfare needs of animals, be it domestic, farm, or wild animals. Her research group was recognized in a 2017 IEEE ComSoc Competition Communications Technology Changing the World, for ”Development of a Mobile Application for Animal Welfare” of IEEE Communication Society (2017). She is the director of the newly established lab on Animal-Cyber Systems (ACS), supported by VW Foundation, and established in collaboration with University of Veterinary Medicine in Hannover (Prof. Nicole Kemper). She has successfully integrated her research in computing and animal farming into her course on Information Technologies for Social Good (IT4Good). She has written seminal papers on the cross-roads between computing, sensing and animal welfare.
