PROFILE

I lead the Internet of Things research at Bell Laboratories. My team at Cambridge, Dublin and Antwerp aims at building transformative multi-sensory systems for disruptive mobile, wearable and IoT services in four application areas: Smart Home, Smart Enterprise, Urban City and Digital Lifestyle.

Personally, my research agenda is centred on Computational Behaviour Modelling. I am interested in system and algorithmic challenges in building multi-sensory computational systems to understand real-world human behaviour through modelling people-to-people, people-to-place, people-to-thing interactions. I borrow tenets from Social Psychology, learn from Behavioural Economics and apply Computer Science methods to drive my research. At heart, I am an experimental computer scientist, and I aim at building end-to-end systems with real world deployment. Some of the keywords of my research include: Internet of Things, Behaviour and Activity Modelling, Physical Analytics, Distributed Middleware, and Smart Objects.
