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.
