I am a Senior Research Associate in the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University, UK where I completed my PhD in 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 Science was awarded by Darmstadt University of Technology (TU-Darmstadt) following an industrial master project at Deutsche Telekom. At Lancaster, I am responsible for teaching, research, and project management of several European and UK projects. I also lead the R&D of the Lancaster University Vision online IPTV system and the Storisphere storytelling platform for prototyping and user evaluation of new designs and development of creative media, context-aware distributed systems, and web technologies.

My current research interests cover the topics of QoE and human factor in multimedia systems, SDN/NFV applications, media orchestration, creative media as well as social and behavioral context integration. I have published over 40 research papers in prestigious international conferences and journals, including IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, IEEE Communications Magazine, IEEE Multimedia, ACM Multimedia and ACM Multimedia Systems. I regularly serve as a programme committee member or a reviewer of workshops, conferences and journals such as the Springer MMSJ, IEEE TMM, ACM MMSYS, ACM TVX, IEEE ICC, IEEE CCNC and Elsevier COMNET. I also review books and project proposals.
