I am a Ph.D. student in Collaborative Networking (CoNe) group lead by Prof. Jussi Kangasharju at the Department of Computer Science, University of Helsinki. My study topic is about privacy issues related to the widespread use of public Wi-Fi networks, to which users often resort to when mobile data is costly or unavailable. My thesis proposes two novel communication systems that use conventional Wi-Fi hardware for lightweight communication and information dissemination without association. Such systems have use cases like opportunistic networking in challenged areas where the density of mobile users is high and the transmission window is limited. The title of my Ph.D. thesis is "Privacy-Aware Opportunistic Wi-Fi", and it will be defended in 2020 Q2.
I have also worked with Internet of Things related topics in the DIGILE IoT Finland project. I wrote my M.Sc. thesis as a part of the project by the topic "Content-Centric Networking in the Internet of Things". During that time I got familiar with conventions in sensor environments and delved deep into information-centric networking.
