His research interests are in the area of wireless networks, with emphasis on the design and performance evaluation of new architectures and protocols. Understanding the coupled dynamics and interdependencies that appear in heterogeneous wireless networks between communicating devices when they have to share a common pool of resources is one of its current main activities. The results from his research have been published in more than 100 international journal and conference papers. He is currently involved in several international and national research projects, including the coordination of the ENTOMATIC FP7 collaborative project. At UPF he is giving several courses on networking, queueing theory and wireless networks. He is co-designer and coordinator of the interuniversity master’s degree in Wireless Communications (UPF and UPC).
