I am interested in post-PC computing, social networks and human behaviour. In particular I focus on:
- Human behaviour in social networks and the extending role of smartphones;
- Exploring social concepts such as co-operation for application in decentralised systems;
- Wireless network design and deployment for smart cities and smart societies.
Earlier in my career I also published in discrete mathematics.
