Research Interests

Since April 2008 I am a research assistant of Prof. Dr. Sándor Fekete at TU Braunschweig . My research interests are focused on sensor networks. Particulary I am interested in algorithms for sensor networks which work in a strictly local manner and do not require any location awareness. In addition, I deal with hardware for sensor nodes as well as OSs for embedded systems.
