I am a PhD candidate in software engineering with focus on mobile and pervasive systems. I work with Dr. Christine Julien in the MPC group. My research is mainly about making resource-constrained mobile devices more capable and sustainable through peer-to-peer collaboration. I built a few decentralized sensor systems in mobile ad hoc networks (sometimes referred to as the Internet-of-Things). CV in pdf
