About

I am a member of the Computer Engineering group (TEC), headed by Prof. Lothar Thiele, at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ).
My current research interests are the development and optimization of algorithms for wireless sensor networks and crowd-sensing applications. I'm currently involved in the OpenSense project, which investigates community-based sensing using wireless sensor network technology to monitor urban air pollution.
In June 2019 I successfully defended my PhD thesis entitled Air Quality Sensor Calibration and its Peculiarities.
