Research

My research activities focus on the following topics:
  • indoor positioning - my research activity focuses on the design of positioning algorithms, testbeds and applications.
  • design of power-aware, location-based MAC and routing strategies for wireless ad hoc and sensor networks - the focus is in particular for low bit rate networks based on Ultra Wide Band technology. The research work aims at the definition of algorithms for resource management and routing optimized for the specific features of Ultra Wide Band, in particular ranging and distributed positioning capabilities.
  • routing and network organization in cognitive radio networks - my research work focuses on the definition of network organization algorithms taking into account the specific requirements of cognitive radio networks, with specific focus on clustering and cooperative spectrum sensing; routing in multi-hop cognitive radio in networks is a second topic of interest.
