Profile

Dr.-Ing. German Castignani holds an engineering degree in Computer Science from University of Buenos Aires (Argentina, 2009) and a PhD (with honors) in Computer Science from Institut Mines-Telecom Atlantique (France, 2012). After a first experience as scientific researcher in the field of wireless networking, mobile sensing and driver profiling, Dr.-Ing. German Castignani founded in 2014 Motion-S, the first spin-off of the SnT / University of Luxembourg. Motion-S is a Luxemburghish startup providing solutions for the mobility market (e.g., InsurTech, Car-Sharing, Ride-Sharing, Leasing and OEMs) by enabling Pay-How-You-Drive products using mobile sensing and risk-aware driver profiling techniques. Dr.-Ing. German Castignani is also CTO and Chief Data Scientist at Motion-S, leading a technical team of mobile and backend developers as well as data scientists. He is Research Fellow at the SecanLab research group at SnT / University of Luxembourg, where he continues his research activities by co-tutoring PhD students and research associates.
