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. I am also a member of NODES research group. My study topic is about offloading delay-tolerant data through opportunistic networks.
The key motivation for my research is the fact that data consumed by mobile users is constantly growing, while mobile network operators (MNO) struggle to meet the demand. Areas with high mobile user density are the worst bottlenecks for network operators — especially when it comes to bandwidth. At the same time these areas have high potential for opportunistic networking.
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.
