Short Biography

Krešimir Pripužić is Associate Professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb, Croatia (UNIZG-FER). He has been affiliated with the Department of Telecommunications at UNIZG-FER since 2003.

After finishing gymnasium (major in natural sciences) in his hometown Vinkovci, he started the undergraduate program at the UNIZG-FER, in 1998. He received his diploma degree (Dipl.-Ing.) in electrical engineering with a major in telecommunications and informatics from the UNIZG-FER in September 2003. The research topic of his Diploma thesis was ”Design and implementation of an application for disseminating multimedia messages in mobile environments”. During academic year 2002-2003 he was a scholarship holder of the State Student Scholarship awarded by the Croatian Ministry of Science, Education and Sports. From October 2003 to July 2004 he worked at the Department of TelecommunicationsUNIZG-FER as a research associate on a research project between the Department of Telecommunications and the Research and Development Department of KATE-KOM Company, Zagreb, Croatia. From July 2004 to October 2011 he worked there as a research assistant funded by the Croatian Ministry of Science, Education and Sports. In March 2005 he started his PhD studies at the UNIZG-FER, which he successfully finished in June 2010 by defending his dissertation titled "Top-k publish/subscribe matching model based on sliding window". As a part of his PhD studies, he spent academic year 2006-2007 at the Distributed Information Systems Laboratory at EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne), Switzerland, as a scholarship holder of the Swiss Government scholarship for university, fine arts and music schools for foreign students.

He has co-authored over 25 scientific journal and conference papers. He has experience of participating in projects funded by the EU Framework Programme, and currently participates in COST Action IC1205 Computational Social Choice. He is a member of IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Communications Society and IEEE Geoscience & Remote Sensing Society.
