About me: I am a researcher and teacher at Mälardalen University (MDH) working at the Networked and Embedded Systemsdepartment. I am affiliated with the Complex Real-Time Embedded Systems (CORE) and the Heterogeneous Systems - Hardware Software Co-design (HERO) research groups. I have received my PhD degree in Computer Science and Engineering from MDH in November 2016. My doctoral dissertation is on resource reservation for industrial switched Ethernet networks.
Research: Since January 1st 2017 I am an assistant professor (forskarassistent) at MDH in the area of data communication. My main focus of research is on resource reservation in communication, where the communication can be in different context, such as automation networks, automotive networks, as well as cloud and fog communication infrastructures. I am working in different research projects, such as developing predictable vehicle software utilizing time-sensitive networking (DESTINE), Future Factories in the Cloud (FiC), and XPRES. DESTINE focuses on advancing communication technologies for vehicles using TSN. My role in FiC and XPRES is mostly on developing novel techniques to provide reservation of network resources.
Teaching: Besides research I am teaching topics related to data communications in various bachelor and master courses. I am teaching distance courses in computer networks. I also have lectures in embedded systems courses, such as data communication for embedded systems, embedded systems I and II, and distance course in IoT fundamentals. I have also given several guest lectures in Porto University, Aveiro University, Eindhoven University of Technology and Volvo Construction Equipment.
Community services: I was a visiting researcher at Aveiro University in Portugal in 2013. During that time he has also visited Porto University in Portugal. I was a reviewer and subreviewer for many prominent journals and conferences including RTS, TII, TIE, WFCS, RTCSA, RTSS, ETFA and ECRT.
My main research interests are real-time systems, real-time distributed systems, scheduling algorithms on networks and processors, schedulability analyses, resource reservation, reconfiguration mechanisms. Moreover, I am interested in resource reservation in different context such as in Internet of Things (IoT), cloud and fog computing for factory and admission controls.
