I am interested in future technologies for smart cities and smart societies. In particular I focus on:
- Infrastructure - issues surrounding wireless network design and deployment;
- Services - decentralised and personalised approaches for knowledge acquisition;
- People - human mobility, activity, places and characteristics.
Related to this I also simulate social and societal concepts related to cooperation and social networks. Much of my work has been motivated by the emergence of mobile phone networks, social media, and smartphone apps for location-based services. Earlier in my career I also published in discrete mathematics.
