My Erdos number is 3! (via Ivan Stojmenovic)

I graduated in 2002 with a Ph.D. degree in Telematics from the University of Murcia. During last years I have held a few research positions including a "Ramon y Cajal" research career, Visiting Resarcher at ICSI in Berkeley, Research Associate within CCRG at Univ of California at Santa Cruz and Visiting Research Fellow within the CTR at King's College London. In addition, I also worked for the Spanish National Research Network (RedIRIS), Agora Systems S.A. and the Dept. of Telematic Enginieering of University Carlos III in Madrid. Currently I work in the area of Telematic Enginering at the Department of Information and Communications Engineering of the University of Murcia.
My main research interests are related to analysis and designg of efficient communication protocols for highly distributed and heterogeneous systems including wireless ad hoc and sensor networks, mesh networks and vehicular ad hoc networks.
