Research Interests

My research explores timeliness and consistency issues in computer systems, in particular, databases, real-time systems, and distributed applications. 
My recent work addresses these issues in the context of Dynamic Data in SENSOR NETWORKS, EMBEDDED SYSTEMS, SMART GRIDS, MOBILE ENVIRONMENTS and the web.
During the last few years I have been interested in the use of Information and Communication Technologies for creating tools aimed at socio-economic development.
