Today's Internet needs to support untethered communications, mobility, quality of service, sensing and actuation, user-programmability and, most importantly, sustainability through the use of renewable energy. My research aims to meet those needs from the networking protocols perspective, addressing the needs of 5G networks, the Internet of Things and other machine-type communications technologies, encompassing both long-range communications (LTE-A, Narrowband IoT) as well as, short range technologies (IEEE802.15.4, 6LoWPAN, RPL, etc.)
As a member of the Wireless Networks Research Group (WiNe), my latest research on the Internet of Things focuses on Industrial IoT, 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 smart networked sensing applications. Critical issues being addressed include quality of service (QoS) support for multimedia traffic, environmentally-friendly (green) technology for wireless communication networks, and application of software defined networking in the Internet of Things.
I have worked for more than 16 years in mission-oriented research, taking ideas from theory to prototypes. You can read more about my research and also access some of my papers from my personal web page.
