This research visit is to continue and extend their existing collaboration on mobile data offloading with Dr. Pan Hui through the MADNet project. Aaron is currently pushing the protocol design to Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) with senior experts from Nokia Siemens Networks and Nokia Research Center via the Internet Draft. The initial work has been accepted to the ACM CoNEXT'12 workshop in Nice France and IEEE International Conference SECON 2013 in New Orleans, USA.
Dr. Pan HUI is a senior research scientist at Telekom Innovation Laboratories (T-labs) Germany, and an adjunct Professor of social computing and networking at Aalto University (Helsinki University of Technology) Finland. He received his PhD from Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge. During his PhD, he was also an affiliated researcher with Intel Research Cambridge. His current research interests include challenged networks, social networking and computing, cloud computing, mobile and pervasive systems, and the application of complex network science in communication systems design. Dr. Hui has around 100 publications and has accumulated more than 3,000 citations. He has founded and chaired several IEEE/ACM conferences/workshops mainly in the area of challenged networks, and served on the technical program committee of numerous international conferences and workshops including IEEE INFOCOM, SECON, MASS and GLOBECOM. Dr. Hui also has several granted and pending European patents. Apart from research, he enjoys adventure in challenged environments and bringing technology to rural communities, for example he did a 4,000 km bicycle trip across Tibet in 2002 and has co-organized 4 editions of ExtremeCom conferences.
