Research profile

I'm a research expert at the University of Leuven in the DistriNet research group. My research interests are in the field of event-based systems for ubiquitous computing and Internet of Things applications. My research interests also include middleware support for context-driven services, identity management, media and e-health applications.

I received my Master's degree in Computer Science from the KU Leuven, Belgium, in 2002, and my Master's degree in Artificial Intelligence in 2003 from the same university. In 2009, I received a Ph.D. degree in computer science with a thesis entitled "Support for context-driven applications in Ambient Intelligence environments" at the Department of Computer Science of the KU Leuven. I was involved in several national and European research projects, including the FP7 BUTLER project, the ITEA project "LOMS" (Local Mobile Services) that received the ITEA 2008 Gold Achievement Award.
