My research is driven by the interplay between physical mobility and mobile computer networks. I am curious to find ways on how to advance networked systems by leveraging knowledge about physical mobility, and - the other way round - to get new insights about physical mobility by analyzing network data. This research involves mobility characterization and modeling, statistical data and performance analysis, and the development of novel, adaptive wireless networking solutions in particular for energy-efficient, ad-hoc and opportunistic communication. The gain of knowledge about physical mobility and its perception in the network including information delay allow to develop anticipatory mobile systems that act autonomously and can interact properly with humans.
