Wireless ad-hoc networking:

Experiment-driven characterization of wireless links and opportunistic establishment of wireless links for local communication such as between drones (unmanned aerial networks), smart phones, in disaster scenarios, and in hybrid infrastructure/ad-hoc networks.


Mobile networked systems:

Optimized networking on different layers by leveraging and anticipating performance characteristics of networks.


Human-robot teaming:

Communication and coordination between humans and machines.
