Research Topics

Research Interests: I am conducting my research in the Statistical Analysis of Networks and Systems (SANS) Research Group . SANS is part of the Computer Networks and Distributed Systems (CNDS) Research Group, accredited by UPC and accredited by AGAUR (Agencia d'Gestió d'Ajuts Universitaris i de Recerca) de la Generalitat de Catalunya as a Consolidated Research Group. The CompNet Research Group currently is leaded by Prof. Jorge García Vidal and was born at the beginning of the 90's. During the 90's, our research activities were focussed on Broadband Communications with special emphasis in ATM networks and performance evaluation. We have also researched on Internet Topology (BGPv4 and Internet topology) and TCP/IP protocol design, WSN, VANETs, DTNs (Delay/Disruptive Tolerant Networks) and Mobility models for opportunistic networking.

My current areas of interest are Wireless Networks and Mobile Networks:

  • "human mobility patterns" (Smart Data) from mobility traces, e.g. taken from mobile phones, IoT devices, etc.
  • Calibration of sensors (e.g. O3, NOx, etec sensors).
  • Machine learning techniques applied to big data.
  • Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) and Multimedia Wireless Sensor Networks (WMSN),
  • Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANET),

PhD Students:

  • Farnoosh Farokhmanesh: Topic: calibration of sensors (e.g. O3 metaloxid sensors) and machine learning techniques to pollutant sensors.

Former PhD Students:

  • Dr. Oscar Trullols Cruces (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, BSC, Spain). Title of the PhD Thesis: Information Dissemination in Mobile Networks, July 2014. Awarded "Best PhD Thesis at UPC in the area of IT in 2015.
  • Dr. Mohammad Alaei (University of Kerman, Iran). Title of the PhD Thesis: Energy Efficient Cooperative Node Management for Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks, PhD Defense date, June 2013
  • Dr. Juan I. Nieto-Hipolito (UABC, México). Title of the PhD Thesis: Analysis of the Internet Topology and generation models, PhD Defense date, June 2005

Internship Students:
