Since April 2012, I am a researcher at Bell Labs and part of the IoT group. I also hold a honorary research position at University College London where I previously obtained my PhD and worked as a Post-Doc.

My current research focus is on IoT (Internet of Things) and ubiquitous computing, in particular ubiquitous crowd-sourcing. Ubiquitous crowd-sourcing is a new paradigm for collecting information about POIs and events within urban cities through citizens. The main challenges of this paradigm is ensuring quality and coverage of the collected content. To examine the quality and coverage of such systems, I have been performing large-scale data analysis on OpenStreetMaps.
