Research Interests and Focus

In terms of field of research, following figure best describes my research interests. My research primarily focus on three research questions:
  1. How can we build efficient and effective sensing infrastructure using knowledge engineering techniques to acquire and use sensor data in order to understand and improve ourselves (individuals) and surroundings (homes and cities) better?
  2. How can we encourage data sharing in order to achieve (1) ?
  3. How can we achieve (1) and (2) without compromising privacy or security ?
