About me

I'm a member of the Communication Networks and Systems (NETS) Laboratory (formerly known as the Computer and Network Architectures Laboratory) at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science.  I'm also affiliated with the Communications Research (CoRe) Group at Uppsala University.

CV (out-of-date pdf) and publications (google scholar).


Research interests

My research interests are networking and systems, especially ad hoc and sensor networks.  My current work focuses mainly on problems related to routing, energy management, media access control, and quality of service in multihop wireless networks. I'm also interested practical operational and deployment problems that arise in these relatively autonomous networks.

Professional Activities

I'm currently chairing the Demo/Tools Session for the 17th ACM Conference on Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Wireless and Mobile Systems (MSWiM 2014) and I'm also part of the Steering Committee for the International Workshop on OMNeT++.

Some of my current TPC's are IFIP Networking 2014, where I was the TPC co-chair in 2010, WiOpt 2014 -- 12th Intl. Symposium on Modeling and Optimization in Mobile, Ad Hoc, and Wireless Networks, and MSWiM 2014 -- 17th ACM Conference on Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Wireless and Mobile Systems.

Please consider submitting to or attending one of these interesting conferences!
