Dr. Ingolf Krueger is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) Department of UCSD's Jacobs School of Engineering, where he directs the "Service-Oriented Software and Systems Engineering Laboratory" (S3EL). He also directs the "Software & Systems Architecture & Integration" (SAINT) functional area within the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2). Dr. Krueger is a member of the UCSD Divisional Council of Calit2, and is Vice Chair for Industrial Relations for CSE.
Dr. Krueger’s major research interests are service-oriented software & systems engineering for distributed, reactive systems, software architectures, description techniques, verification & validation, and development processes. The application domains to which he applies his research results span the entire range from networked embedded systems to Internet-wide business information architectures.
Within his Calit2 functional area Dr. Krueger directs a team of software professionals working on a wide variety of large scale software and systems engineering efforts. This involves the design and implementation of service-oriented integration architectures, infrastructures and applications for projects in areas such as homeland security, disaster response, decision support, command and control, automotive and telecommunications. His team members join practical experience with cutting-edge research to develop next-generation "systems of systems" that require flexibility, security, safety, scalability and robustness.
Dr. Krueger holds a doctoral degree from Technische Universität München, Germany, and an M.A. from the University of Texas at Austin, where he studied on a Fulbright scholarship. He is a member of multiple professional societies, including the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). Dr. Krueger has organized and co-organized several international workshops on service-orientation and other software-engineering topics, including the Automotive Software Workshop San Diego 2004 & 2006. He is a member of the editorial board of the Springer scientific journal on "Software & Systems Modeling" (SoSym), and of the Consultant Board for UCSD Extension Programs on Software Engineering and New Program Development.
