Personal profile

My research field is quite broad in the area of computer and telecommunications systems.
One main topic (also the topic of my own PhD thesis) is efficient simulation of rare events, motivated by the need to estimate small probabilities (of undesirable events such as packet loss and call blocking) in queueing models of telecommunication systems. Techniques from rare-event simulation also have broader applications.
On a broader scale, I'm interested in many aspects of communication systems and networks, in particular their mathematical aspects, such as performance and correctness.
Furthermore, I have an active interest in many aspects of radio, such as software-defined radio technology and propagation phenomena.
