My current research focusses on Cloud and mobile Cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT),  heterogeneous access networks and Quality of Experience (QoE).

  1. Cloud and  Mobile Cloud Computing
    • Cloud performance benchmarking, diagnosis and prediction
    • Cloud orchestration
    • Simulation tools for Clouds
    • Developing mobile Cloud computing systems that offer seamless application continuity while users roam in HANs
  2. Quality of Experience
    • Methods for QoE modeling, measurement and prediction
    • Proactive QoE provisioning in HANs and Cloud systems
  3. Internet of Things
    • Distributed data storage and processing, for example, using edge computing
    • Sensor discovery and annotation mechanisms
    • Context-aware reasoning and adaptation
