Research interests

I am interested in research subjects that lie at the interface of mobile networks and data science, including data-driven network design and management, remote sensing from mobile network metadata, and privacy-preserving network data publishing.


I currently have openings for PhD students. If you are interested in joining my group, and have a degree in Computer Science or related field, strong programming skills, and enthusiasm for interdisciplinary research, please consider applying.
