Professor, Network Engineering
I am actively involved in research and development in the areas of mobile ad hoc and sensor networks, and co-developed one of the first Quality of Service models for mobile ad hoc networks. As a member of the Network Engineering Research Group (NERG), my latest research focuses on Wireless Sensor Networks Powered by Ambient Energy Harvesting (WSN-HEAP), wireless sensor networks for structural health monitoring, wireless multi-hop networks and mobility-enhanced protocols and algorithms for networked swarm robotics and sensing applications in terrestrial and oceanographic networks. I am also interested in environmentally-friendly (green) technology for wireless communication networks. I have worked for more than 16 years in mission-oriented research, taking ideas from theory to prototypes.
