My research interests span computer networking mainly with a focus on the upper layers. I am currently involved in projects examing low latency communication, in particular in relation to multi-path systems with applications to practical settings such as providing Internet access to passengers onboard trains. I also have a general interest in internet access performance of Starlink and on mobile platforms such as train-mounted cellular aggregation routers, as well as using deterministic network emulation to evaluate internet-based applications and protocols is also a topic of interest.

I have been project manager or subprojet manager for several projects, in most cases also involving industry partners such as Icomera.
I am currently sub-project manager within the 8-year DRIVE project working on measurements and evaluations of techniques to provide low-latency communication.
Prior to this I was sub-project manager within the 6-year HITS project investigating novel communications solutions, and another recent project was TRUEdig where the main focus was on exaplainabilty of ML and related techniques.
Further back I was initiator and project manager for the KauNet project funded by the Swedish foundation for Internet Infrastructure to enhance the KauNet emulator codebase and documentation.
I had a five month research visit at Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Ingénieurs de Constructions Aéronautiques (ENSICA), Toulouse, France to do research and deveolpment of programmable emulation with applications to satellite communications.
