My research interests span computer networking mainly with a focus on the upper layers, as well as computer forensics. I am currently involved in projects covering cellular data collection from active measurements, core network data extraction through middleboxes, and internet access performance on mobile platforms such as train-mounted cellular aggregation routers. Using deterministic network emulation to evaluate internet-based applications and protocols is also a topic of interest.

Subproject manager for the HITS project. Working mainly with industry partners Icomera and Procera Networks on methods to collect and evaluate large amounts of networks trace and performance data. Improved traffic classification, and improved understanding of the train to cellular wireless channel are current areas of interest.
Project initiator and manager for the FIVES project. FIVES was funded by Safer Internet plus, and was a project aiming to develop computer forensics, image and video processing tools to aid the police when investigating cases related to Child Sexual Abuse. The consortia was composed of six partners from five countries, including academic, law enforcement and commercial organizations.
Initiator and project manager for the KauNet project funded by the Swedish foundation for Internet Infrastructure enhance the KauNet emulator codebase and documentation.
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. Funded by French Ministry of Defense.
Investigator in “Reliable and Secure Communication in SCTP”, funded by the Knowledge Foundation of Sweden. In collaboration with Tieto Enator AB and Ericsson AB.
Co-work package leader for work package 6 on “Protocols and Architectures, and Traffic Modeling for Wireless Networks” of the EU FP6 Network of Excellence Newcom with more than 60 academic and industrial partners.
