About Me

Present

 

 

Since September 2010, I hold a Ph.D. with honors from TU-Kaiserslautern, Germany.

 

Past

From 2006 to 2010, I pursued a doctoral degree in the Chair for Real Time Systems in TU-Kaiserslautern, Germany.

During this time I actively participated in WASP, an IST EU project with main focus on Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). This large research project leaded by PHILIPS involved a number of industry partners and academic institutions from all across the EU. The project put into practice a common aim of narrowing the gap between academic research and industry deployments involving state-of-the-art WSNs.

Previously, I participated in the IST EU project BETSY, in which together with PHILIPS Research and other European partners we researched on multimedia stream adaptations and energy saving in devices with limited resources.

My work at the University of Kaiserslautern focused on Timeliness issues of WSN, in particular on providing meaningful timeliness without requiring restrictive assumptions. Other topics within my research interests include quality of service trade-offs as well as portability of applications and operating system in the area of WSN.

As part of my academic duties, I collaborated on the courses Real-Time Systems I and II. I was in charge of several labs and practical sessions, as well as the course exam for RTS I. I also assisted as a lecturer and supervised and coordinated the work of several Master students, undergraduate projects (Studien/Diplomarbeit) as well as a number student assistants (HiWis).

Before joining TUKL, I graduated in Computer Engineering from the University of Balearic Islands (Mallorca, Spain). During my last undergraduate year, I studied abroad at the Mälardalens Högskola (Västerås, Sweden) where I did my final project related to bandwidth estimation algorithms for wireless networks. After that, I spent two months at the Universidade Federal Fluminense (Niterói, RJ, Brazil) as a guest researcher.
