Markus Weiss received his diploma in Computer Science from the University of Würzburg, Germany in February 2008. During his studies he worked as student assistant for the Distributed Systems Group of the University of Würzburg. In 2005 he received a one year scholarship for his graduate studies at the University of Texas at Austin, USA. There he focused on networks and security issues. His diploma thesis was based on a project cooperation with Datev EG Germany and dealt with the perfomance analysis of different thin-client architectures. From March 2008 on, he is a PhD candidate at the Institute of Pervasive Computing at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich), Switzerland and works as a senior researcher at the BitsToEnergy Lab. In addition, he is a visiting scholar at the Engineering Systems Division and the Energy Initiative at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, USA since February 2011.

Bits to Energy Lab
The Bits to Energy Lab is a joint research initiative of ETH Zurich (Chair of Information Management, D-MTEC & Distributed Systems Group, Institute for Pervasive Computing) together with the University of St. Gallen (Institute of Technology Management). The Lab is dedicated to investigating the potential benefits of Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp) technologies for a sustainable development. The goal is to enable a more rational use of energy and to make resource consumption more transparent to companies and consumers.

Auto-ID Labs
The Auto-ID Labs are the leading global network of academic research laboratories in the field of networked RFID. The labs comprise seven of the world's most renowned research universities located on four different continents.

MIT Engineering Systems Division
ESD aims to solve complex engineering systems problems by integrating approaches based on engineering, management, and social sciences—using new framing and modeling methodologies. ESD seeks to facilitate the beneficial application of engineering systems principles and properties by expanding the set of problems addressed by engineers, and to position its graduates as leaders in tackling society’s challenges.
MIT Energy Initiative
The MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI), established in September 2006, is an Institute-wide initiative designed to help transform the global energy system to meet the needs of the future and to help build a bridge to that future by improving today's energy systems.
