Interdisciplinary research and development that positively changes the world. My focus is on wireless sensor networks and Internet of Things (WSN/IoT): the enabling technologies for pervasive and unobtrusive "macroscope", the applications, and the way they change the world and humanity. Specifically, sensory data gathering and analysis with applications to sports, entertainment, digital healthcare and intelligent transportation systems, prototyping platforms and embedded operating systems, directional communication, and effective IoT applications.
