When everyone is walking around with small computers in their pockets/bags (read smartphones), then how can you harness this ubiqutous computing to create new applications that can potentially change the way we do things now? My current research is focused around this question. I am particularly interested in the use of smartphones for novel traffic and transport related applications.
Another stream of my research involves Wireless Sensor Networks. I am part of the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction CSIC here at University of Cambridge where I am looking at applications of wireless sensor networks in the construction and infrastructure management industry.
My previous research focused on localization algorithms for wireless sensor networks. As part of the Acoustic Actuated Sensor Networks for Industrial Processes AASN4IP project at University of Oxford, I developed algorithms for localizing miniature robots in water ponds cluttered with industrial waste. These algorithms can be easily used in other cluttered environments, for example, an office full of furniture.
