Kort presentation

I am leading the Computer Communication group CoRe, at the department of Information Technology. We do experimental research within Internet-of-Things, mobile, and sensor networking often in collaboration with industry. My most recent work include fog computing, robust wireless sensor networks, mobility and Quality of Information in Body Area Networks. During the Spring semester I regularly teach the advanced Data Communication III course as well as the Distributed Information Systems course.
