I am a Professor at the Department of Computer Science in the University of Iceland. I am also a visiting professor and docent at Aalto University.

My research interests include performance analysis and optimization of (large-scale) parallel server systems, that emerge, e.g., in the context of cloud computing and Big Data (cf. MapReduce and job replication). In particular, I am interested in developing means to optimize dispatching, scheduling and server control policies in order to minimize (non-linear) cost structures. Additionally, I am interested in performance modeling of opportunistic networking and wireless networking in general, including mobility, routing and coding (e.g., fountain and network coding). I am also interested in data traffic measurements in the context of cyber security.

During the last years, I have lectured Nonlinear Optimization, Performance Analysis of Computer Systems, Software Development A, and Formal Languages and Computability courses in University of Iceland.

This year, we are starting the new joint MS degree in Cyber Security together with Reykjavik University. I will organize a course on network traffic measurements and analysis in collaboration with Aalto University Department of Information and Communication Engineering. (NEW)
