Collaborative Networking group has 5 members.
Prof. Jussi Kangasharju

Jussi Kangasharju received his MSc from Helsinki University of Technology in 1998. He received his Diplome d'Etudes Approfondies (DEA) from the Ecole Superieure des Sciences Informatiques (ESSI) in Sophia Antipolis in 1998. In 2002 he received his PhD from University of Nice Sophia Antipolis/Institut Eurecom. In 2002 he joined Darmstadt University of Technology (TUD), first as post-doctoral researcher, and from 2004 onwards as assistant professor.  Since June 2007 Jussi is a professor at the department of computer science at University of Helsinki. Between 2009 and 2012 he was the director of the Future Internet research program at Helsinki Institute for Information Technology (HIIT). Jussi's research interests are information-centric networks, edge and cloud computing, content distribution, opportunistic networks, and green ICT. He is a member of IEEE and ACM.

Nitinder Mohan

Nitinder received the Master of Technology degree in Computer Science and Engineering with specialization in Mobile Ubiquitous Computing from Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology (IIIT)-Delhi, India. After his studies he worked in Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)-Delhi, India as a Project Scientist in an Intel Labs, USA funded research project which aimed at sharing resources of computationally-insufficient devices in a Device-to-Device (D2D) network. Nitinder's Ph.D. research at University of Helsinki is funded by EU FP7 Marie Curie Actions project, Cleansky ITN. His research encompasses several aspects of edge computing and how it can be tied down in the areas of IoT, eSciences and industrial applications. 

Otto Waltari

Otto Waltari received his MSc from University of Helsinki in 2014. He worked for CoNe group as a research assistant until 2015 and continued from there with his doctoral studies under Jussi Kangasharju's supervision. During his studies he has collaborated with the Internet of Things research group at Alcatel-Lucent Bell-Labs.

Otto's research focus is in WiFi technologies and devices. His main research is about potential privacy leaks during the association phase of WiFi devices. He has also worked on augmenting the technology into additional applications. Other points of interest in his research involve internet of things, information-centric networking and clean energy research.

Aleksandr Zavodovski

Currently, I'm at the beginning of my PhD studies, interested in various networking technologies, IoT and above all, the edge computing. I got my MSc from the University of Helsinki in 2016, and my thesis topic was related to Television White Space radio frequencies utilization by mobile devices.

Pengyuan Zhou

Pengyuan's research interests include Edge Computing, Connected Vehicles and Mobile Offloading etc. He has been working in UNINETT (Norway) and HKUST-DT SyMLab (Hong Kong) as a visiting researcher. 

His Ph.D. research at UH is funded mainly by EU FP7 Marie Curie Actions project "Cleansky ITN" and partly by several Academy of Finland projects. Before joining UH, Pengyuan received his Bachelor and Master degree both from University of Science and Technology Beijing.
