The group carries out research in network architectures, mobile and distributed systems. We especially focus on wireless systems and distributed architectures in layer 2 and above in the network protocol stack.
With the emergence of highly dense mobile and pervasive systems come new challenges in efficiency, scalability and robustness, all fundamental aspects underpinning modern communication environments. We strive to enable new services and uses of these systems driving progress in the networked society. We concentrate on all aspects of systems building from architectural design via optimisation and performance modeling to experimental evaluations and simulations of complex systems.
The activities in the group spans tools and theory from both electrical engineering and computer science with a strong focus on algorithmic development.
We have strong collaborations with industry and strive to take our results from theoretical study to implementation and standardisation. Current research areas,
