    • Topology Control algorithms

In my research I want to help engineer better communication system algorithms.

Particularly, I am interested in wireless (sensor/ad-hoc) networks. In this context Topology Control algorithms modify the network topology to improve non-functional properties (e.g., energy consumption, network lifetime) while maintaining crucial properties (e.g., connectivity, coverage).

My goal is to provide a methodology for developing Topology Control algorithms that are

  • applicable (i.e., "efficient enough" compared to manual implementations) and at the same time
  • correct-by-construction (i.e., maintain crucial properties specified using graph constraints).

My research is funded by the Corporate Research Center "Multi-Mechanism Adaptation for the Future Internet" (CRC 1053 (MAKI)).
