He currently works in the +CityxChange project. The project aims to realize Europe-wide deployment of Positive Energy Districts by 2050 and prepare the way for fully Positive Energy Cities. As such, a distributed and modular ICT Ecosystem Architecture and Data Integration approach is developed.
The developed ICT Ecosystem Architecture will orchestrate and support distributed services and data, recommendations on the use of big data and citizen engagement, and Enterprise Architecture approaches. His main activities in the +CityxChange project include;
- Development of a scalable ICT Ecosystem Architecture and Roadmap for a Smart City.
- Approaches to open data, data Integration and Interoperability for the ICT Ecosystem.
- Enterprise Architecture and API repositories to support service development and Open Innovation 2.0.
- Participate in Smart City related research activities at the department and NTNU.
- Lead and supervise student projects related to ICT Ecosystem Architecture and urban big data analytics.
- Integration and learning from the existing H2020 projects.
