I am a Senior Research Associate in the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University, UK where I also completed PhD of Computer Science on the topic of QoE in content distribution networks. Prior to joining Lancaster University, I studied in Germany and my Master’s degree of Information and Communication Engineering was awarded by TU-Darmstadt (Darmstadt University of Technology) following an internship at Deutsche Telekom Technology Centre. I have been actively contributing to proposal writing, research, and project management of multiple European and UK projects such as MediaCityUK FIRMEC FP7 P2P-NextFP7 STEERFP7 OFELIA, and most recently FP7 FI-CONTENT 2. I am also leading the R&D of the Lancaster University Vision Social IPTV system and Storisphere storytelling platform.

My current research interests cover the topics of QoE-aware content distribution, SDN/NFV applications, immersive experience through media orchestration, creative media and storytelling as well as improve user engagement by understanding the patterns of web browsing and online TV viewing. I published over 40 research papers in international conferences and journals of high impacts, including IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, IEEE Communications Magazine, IEEE Multimedia Magazine, ACM Conference on Multimedia and ACM Multimedia Systems. I regularly serve as programme committee member and reviewer of workshops, conferences and journals such as Springer MMSJ, IEEE TMM, ACM MMSYS, ACM TVX, IEEE ICC, and Elsevier COMNET. I also provide reviews for book proposals and project proposals.
