Shashank Gaur successfully defended his PhD dissertation on context-aware sensor networks

25, Feb, 2022

Shashank Gaur has successfully defended his PhD thesis, supervised by Eduardo Tovar and Luis Almeida, at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, located in Porto, Portugal.

His thesis, entitled "Context Aware Sensor Networks" focuses on providing a WSN middleware that can automatically adapt the execution of applications to changes in contexts while enabling high-level applications programming with efficient operation. This middleware is a cornerstone for the wide adoption of context-aware sensor networks. This middleware is enabled by providing a) Programming models with mobility, modularity, and abstraction features, b) A resource manager that tracks computing resources available and their capabilities and c) A context manager that tracks collected data to activate/deactivate contexts.

The PhD jury committee was composed of Luca Mottola, Associate Professor at Politecnico di Milano; Paolo Pagano, Director of joint lab of CNIT/Port Network Authority of Northern Tyrrhenian Sea; Ana Aguiar, Assistant Professor at Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto and Mário Sousa, Assistant Professor at Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto.
