Marco Caballero

I'm a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science and Technology at the University of Cambridge since October 2016, working under the supervision of professor Jon Crowcroft in the Systems Research group. I also hold an MSc in Computer Science and a BSc in Computer Systems engineering from Instituto Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores de Occidente. Prior to starting my PhD, I worked in the industry as a software engineer for nearly a decade doing systems-level development at Oracle and Microsoft.

I am also a member of Churchill College and my PhD research is funded by the Cambridge Trust - CONACYT scholarship.

My PhD research focuses on enhancing the scalability and resiliency of wireless ad-hoc networks. To this effect, I am working on improving their spectral efficiency through the separation of control and data plane into heterogeneous radio bands. In this area, I'm researching the uses of low-powered radios such as LORA to reduce the overhead of routing protocols. Furthermore, I'm interested in the security and confidentiality guarantees these networks can offer, as well as clever security mechanisms for them, such as radio-channel-based encryption.
