News

  • September 2020: Not really "news", but some of my old work suddenly became very relevant. In 2009 I spent a summer in Cambridge, UK working on FluPhone, a project where we tracked human contacts via Bluetooth sensing and examined how an epidemics might spread. Back then Android phones were not widespread and Nokias were difficult to work with. The project is a great example of an idea that was ahead of its time, thus technologically unfeasiable.
    In 2013 I was a part of a team at the University of Birmingham, UK that examined large-scale disease spreading proxied from mobile network data. Our epidemics models include the one that was awarded with the Orange D4D prize and another one described in this preprint paper with folks from MIT.

  • January 2020: "Bringing Resource Efficiency to Smartphones with Approximate Computing" project has been funded by the Slovenian National Research Agency (ARRS) will run for the next two years!
