Pervasive and mobile computing
I conduct experimental systems research in pervasive computing. With distributed systems as my point of departure, I currently explore human dynamics as a core ingredient of urban and social pervasive computing systems.
I am especially interested in the implications of this new computing paradigm for society at large, for example in creating Smart Cities, and also for self-care, for extending the museum experience and in retail.
In these pages you can find more infromation about research condcuted by my group, including recent projects and publications. You can also find resources I use in my teaching of these areas. If you are an MSc student in the school looking for a summer project check this page for some ideas.
