Focus areas. My research targets network systems, from wireless communication to mobile computing and distributed systems, with emphasis on energy efficiency. I am currently working on pervasive displays, data offloading, and the Internet of Things.
Objective. My goal is to understand currently-available technologies and systems, in terms of both performance and possible applications. I am also deeply interested in the design of efficient and practical solutions with impact on everyday life.
Approach. My research seeks to bridge theory and practice, from modeling and analysis to system implementation and evaluation, then all the way back. I consider multi-disciplinarity and international collaborations key aspects for high-profile research.
