I am an assistant professor at the Pervasive Systems group at the University of Twente. My research interests include distributed intelligence over networked systems, mobile computing, autonomous multi-agent systems and socially responsible engineering. I am particularly interested in building extremely flexible, self-configurable and adaptable, wireless networks for communication systems able to adapt to stringent and conflicting objectives in terms of user satisfaction, configurability and durability.
