Dr.-Ing. Sandro Rodriguez Garzon


Sandro Rodriguez Garzon received his diploma in Computer Engineering at the Technische Universität Berlin in 2005. From 2006 to 2007, he worked as a software engineer for the sd&m AG (Capgemini S.A.) and participated in several software projects for vehicle manufactures like Volkswagen and Audi. In 2007, he started his doctoral research on the context-aware personalization of automotive user interfaces at the Daimler Center for Automotive IT Innovations within the group of Compiler Construction and Programming Languages of Prof. Peter Pepper. Thereby, he worked on the formal specification of automotive user interfaces and their adaptation capabilities as well as on multiple prototypes for mobile platforms e.g. Android and iOS.

In October 2013, he joined the Telekom Innovation Laboratories as a research associate within the group of Service-centric Networking led by Prof. Axel Küpper.

Sandro's research is focused in the fields of Ubiquitous Computing, Distributed Computing and Data Science.

Abstract The recent years have seen a vast growth of location-based services (LBS) usage with the ubiquity of smart mobile devices. While reactive LBS act on the user's request, proactive LBS notify the user proactively of relevant location-specific content in case a dedicated area is entered. The usage scenarios of proactive LBS vary from location-based reminders to location-based marketing. With the increasing popularity of LBS also privacy concerns are raised, reclaiming the whereabouts of a user worth protecting. This is especially true for proactive LBS as they constantly share the location of the mobile device with the service and hence continuously track the user's location in order to act proactively. This paper introduces a context-sensitive privacy-awareness framework for mobile devices which enables mobile device users to individually define different privacy preferences for different contexts. It is intended to give the user full control over her/his sensitive location information to allow the user to determine whenever and wherever the user's location is allowed to be shared with 3 rd party applications or services. As a proof of concept, a prototypical implementation is presented which enforces the user's context-sensitive privacy settings on mobile devices during the use of proactive LBS.
