Background and activities

Research area

Overall I work with different aspects of data communication. In particular I have worked on performance evaluation ,interface devices, QoS,  wireless networks including  multi-hop and sensor networks and some security aspects. I believe it is important to address cross displimary aspects of communictation, i.e communication in an application domain.
