About

I am a PhD student at the RTSlab of the Linköping University with interest on energy efficiency, mobile communication, wireless networking, distributed systems and green computing. I obtained both my BSc and MSc degrees in Telecommunications Engineering from Mondragon university, Spain.

Apart from my research and the PhD courses, I teach in the following courses:

  • Green computing (TDDD50)
  • Distributed embedded software and networks (TDDI07)
  • Perspektiv på informationsteknologi (TDDD39)

I have also defined and supervised several master and bachelor thesis projects with both research and industry assignments. For more information have a look at my Linkedin profile.

Theses:

PhD thesis (expected spring 2016)

Licentiate thesis: Exploting Energy Awareness in Mobile Communication - October 2013 (Link)
