Stefan Liebald is currently a scientific staff member and lecturer at the Chair of Network Architectures and Services at the Technical University of Munich (TUM).

He received his Master degree in Informatics from TUM in February 2016. Currently he is a PhD canditate at TUM. His main area of interest lies in Internet of Things and Smart Space research. Current work is focused on Smart Space Orchestration using a distributed, software oriented architecture.

Another area of interest is teaching. He is working on a practical networking course (the iLab) held at TUM since the last 4 years. Furthermore he is part of a team currently preparing a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) aimed at teaching computer network fundamentals using practical exercises in a virtual elearning environment.
