Research area

In my research I focus on wireless communication technologies for mobile networks (5G and beyond), ranging from wireless system design, radio network resource management (both model-based and AI-based), to physical-layer technologies abstraction and radio propagation. My recent research activities aim to design and develop flexible, robust and intelligent wireless networking, in particular radio network architecture and management mechanisms with balance between scientific quality and practical limits, for Joint Communication and Sensing (JCAS), network energy saving, cell-free networking, 3D networking, hybrid radio and optical access networks, etc. My research work contributes directly to the PMC cluster “Fast and Open Infrastructures” within the TNO ISP Unit.
