I am no longer working at the University of Basel. I have moved to the University College Dublin (UCD), School of Computer Science and Informatics, Ireland, where I am working as Postdoctoral Researcher at CLARITY (Centre for Sensor Web Technologies). I will be mainly contributing to two EU projects: HOBNET and FIEMSER. I will no longer maintain this page. Take care.
Currently I am working on a small Content Centric Network related project. We are trying to implement a probabilistic deamon based on LoMA as a replacement for ccnd. The idea is to proof that the standard ccnd cannot cope well with the aggressive nature of TCP if run in parallel. The new model hopefully will allow to share the traffic channel more fairly between two streams.
Pre-print of my PhD dissertation entitled "Dynamic Code Morphing in Network Embedded Systems" is now available online (see the link below). The printed version will be available in the second half of August, 2011. Let me know if you would like to get your copy (the number of available copies is limited). The presented version is of restricted use (no hyperlinks, copy protection, etc). In case you want to get a fully featured version please drop me an email.
On 08.07.2011 I have successfully defended my PhD entitled "Dynamic Code Morphing in Network Embedded Systems". The body of work will be made publicly available in the near future.

Thank you all for making this event fruitful and fun.
Our latest paper "Force-Based Navigation in Wireless Sensornets" is now available online (see the list of publications).
I have recently completed my PhD at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (formerly Computer Science Department), University of Basel, and a member of the Computer Networks Research Group. I joined the group in February 2006 to work on the PermaSense project. The project is aimed at building and customizing a set of wireless measurement units for use in remote areas with harsh environmental monitoring conditions, and gathering of environmental data that helps to better understand the processes that connect climate change and rock fall in permafrost areas. To this end, two sensor fields have been designed and deployed in the Swiss Alps so far. My main research interest within this project was the various design aspects of wireless sensor ad-hoc networks (WSN) technology. I am particularly interested in applying self-organization, optimization and mobile code concepts to the context of WSN. My PhD thesis focuses on network re-tasking techniques using reconfigurable in-network virtual machines and on developing active code compression and code robustness increase methods for WSN.

The free and probably the best program for managing photo albums and publishing them online.
Simple web-pages can be created using the following free sw kits:
• A set of well structured and easily customizable templates. A good starting point. Can also use some themes for WordPress.
• nanoc - a versatile web publishing system. Especially for those who have missed the switch to the blogging era. Like me.
