Research and Consultancy
My research interest spans the areas of cognitive, self organised,
opportunistic networks and systems that are agile and adaptive to users'
demands and dynamic patterns of the underlying mobile ad hoc communications.
End devices are capable of learning, predicting the patterns of
behaviour of other devices and resources, and dynamically sharing the
I was among the first people in Europe to start working on Disruption/Delay Tolerant Networks and have a project funded. See Kevin Fall's slides on DTN people and projects at ACM Mobihoc 2006.
I am interested in a number of open research questions such as improving
energy efficiency, designing new and more efficient data dissemination and
routing protocols and new adaptive security and privacy techniques for data
tranmission in challenging enviroments.
I have over 10 years of experience in technology products, solutions and services, new business development, strategic planning, budget management, advising and consultancy for companies start-ups, SMEs venture capital, other aspects of consultancy including training, coaching and presentations.
