    Highlights

    • I am the Principal Investigator at the Mobile Computing and the Internet of Things Lab at Birkbeck and also Chair the Experimental Data Science Group.

      I work on several research projects in the broad area of data driven methods for pervasive computing such as the cloudUPDRS app, a medical device for Parkinson's Disease, and PDkit, the associated data science toolkit for the development of digital biomarkers for Parkinsons; data manifestation for climate change; a mobile app for Zika virus surveillance; and participatory self-quantification using the IoT. 

      Check this page for information about older research projects such as Urban Tapestries, iBats, MyGrocer and Feral Robots.

      My work on federated identifier services, initally carried out in the context of network RFID, has provided the basis for Recommendation Y.4805 of SG20 of the ITU.

    Research overview

    I conduct experimental systems research in mobile computing and the Internet of Things. With distributed systems as my point of departure, I currently explore human dynamics as a core ingredient of urban and social pervasive computing systems.

    I am especially interested in the implications of this new computing paradigm for mobile health- and self-care, for extending the museum experience, and to create Smart Cities.
