Research projects

Smart Water Management (SWM).
The project aims to develop targeted and robust monitoring and control systems for water distribution networks in China to timely detect and localize water losses due to leaks. In many regions of China Drinking water is a scarce resource. Through developments towards “smart pipe networks”, a reduction of system water losses are achieved.

Extreme Wireless Distributed Systems (EWiDS).
In this project, we aim at a better understanding of using wireless, user-centric sensor technology to monitor and manage the behavior of people. Within the EWiDS project I focus on the topics of communication in dense and mobile wireless sensor networks and in-network data aggregation, such as estimating network sizes and densities
