Dr Petteri Nurmi

Lecturer in the Foundation of Pervasive Data Science

Research Overview

My research interests focus on sensing systems, covering system design, new algorithms for processing and collecting sensor measurements, and theoretical models of sensing. I am also interested in innovative applications of sensing technologies in different fields, ranging from healthcare to security, transportation, and beyond. Recent examples of my research include methods for mobility modelling and applying it to urban design problems, analysis of crowd sensed data and its use to optimize decision making, e.g., in making offloading decisions or energy recommendations to mobile users, and collaborative speech monitoring on commodity devices.
