The driving interest of my research is around mobility and energy-efficiency in sensor networks. As our world embeds more resource-limited devices for digital data collection, coordinating among these devices to extract the most information value is key for better understanding the physical world and to determine how to best manage it. Sensor networks that operate in full harmony with the underlying dynamics of the environment they aim to monitor is the ultimate goal of my work.
I am a Principal Research Scientist at CSIRO's ICT Centre, where I lead the Distributed Sensing Systems Group in Brisbane and Hobart. I have a PhD in Information and Computer Science at University of California, Irvine in September 2005, an MS in Computer Networks and Distributed Computing from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at UCI (2001), and a BE in Computer and Communications Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture at the American University of Beirut in (2000).
