Project Highlight

"The Principle of Science" -- Richard Feynman

With 12 years of R&D work experience across EU, UK and USA, I have been leading and involving in many international projects in tight collaboration with industrial companies. My latest focus is on Edge Computing and Analytics for Cyber-Physical Systems, as reflected in my projects and open topics at CPI Lab.

The projects outlined below illustrate my research schemes, domains, and track records.

Current Projects

 5G Fieldlab Zuid-Holland

 Trust IoT Edge Computing
  • Funding: EC Horizon 2020 sub-grant
