Michael Pauls received his M.Sc . in Computer Science from the Technical University of Berlin in 2016. During his studies he focused mainly on communication systems and next generation network infrastructures. He realized his Master thesis “Design and Implementation of an Autoscaling Engine for Carrier-grade Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs)” during his 2-year employment at the TU Berlin and gained a lot of expertise, especially in this domain. After finishing his studies he started to work as Research Assistant at TU Berlin and Fraunhofer FOKUS with ambitions of writing his PhD. During this time he became an expert in the emerging concept of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) by being mainly involved in projects such as the prototyping of the first standard compliant NFV framework, called Open Baton, and, additionally, involved in OPNFV, in particular, the Orchestra project. Previously he was one of the main developers in the European project NUBOMEDIA taking care of the orchestration of components at the IaaS and PaaS level. Currently he is involved in the European project ElasTest, an elastic platform to ease end to end testing. His main task is to develop a Management and Orchestration platform which is agnostic to the underlying infrastructure.
