I am a final-year PhD candidate at the Communication Research (CoRe)
group at Uppsala Universitet. My research so far has focused on robust
wireless communication in sensor networks — I have looked into packet corruption in outdoor
sensor networks, classifying cross-technology
interference, and performing repeatable
experiments with mobile nodes. I am also interested in
architectural issues of mobility support in
information-centric networks. In the future, I want to understand
how to improve robustness network-wide rather than on a per-hop basis.
How can we make the application layer more robust to various network
conditions without exposing irrelevant details? In general, I enjoy
hands-on systems research.
My advisors are Per
Gunningberg and Edith
Ngai. I graduated from Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, in
November 2009 with the degree Diplom-Informatiker, which translates to
an M.Sc. in computer science.
On Oct 17, 2014, I successfully defended my PhD thesis titled Sensor Networks and Their Radio
Environment. My opponent was Prof.
Andreas Terzis from Johns Hopkins University and Google.
