 Our current active research topics include:

  • NetSense: Our flagship project in its final year that involves the instrumentation of two hundred smartphones distributed amongst students at the University of Notre Dame.

  • NetHealth: Our new flagship project that will be taking over from the NetSense study to instrument five hundred smartphone users coupling them with Bluetooth LE beacons, smartphone agents, and health armbands over a period of two years. An additional four hundred+ users will also be equipped with a lightweight smartphone agent and Bluetooth LE beacons. The focus of the work is to explore network effects from a sociological perspective. Our particular research focus leverages the co-location data gleaned from the study to explore next-generation cellular and WiFi architectures.

  • WeHab: Low-cost rehabilitation utilizing gaming peripherals including the Wii Balance Board and Microsoft Kinect
  • Fast Mobile Network Characterization (FMNC): Our newest project exploring how to quickly characterize and analyze WiFi and cellular performance
  • Whirlwind: The Whirlwind project focuses on how one can leverage low-power radios when in close proximity to pro-actively stage and disseminate content for serving ultra-dense wireless networks. The project itself is currently instrumenting one of the Notre Dame development tents with 802.11ac WiFi as well as one of the local commuter trains to explore content propagation / sharing as part of preliminary data gathering efforts.

Oct-29-2015 Dataset You can grab our dataset from our paper titled "Is There WiFi Yet? How Aggressive Probe Requests Deteriorate Energy and Throughput" at IMC 2015 via this Google Drive link.
Oct-29-2015 Paper Recently, we presented our paper titled "Is There WiFi Yet? How Aggressive Probe Requests Deteriorate Energy and Throughput" at IMC 2015.
Oct-15-2015 Grant Our group as part of the Wireless Institute was recently awarded a grant by IBM to explore collaborative video sharing with trials set for early 2016 in the Compton Family Ice Arena.
 
Feb-2015 Paper While our probe request paper was not quite "hot" enough for HotMobile, we did finally get it recast to be put up on arXiv. Look for most of the papers to make a preliminary stop up at arXiv. The quick summary of the paper is that it focuses on the significant deteriorating effects of aggressive probe requests in ultra-dense environments. We draw from observations at the stadium (inside and out) from Fall 2014 as well as a few smaller scale lab tests for validation.

Sep-25-2014 Grant Our NIH R01 is now officially funded that explores the interplay of health, digital communications, and social networks. The NetHealth study focuses on teasing out fundamental sociological network effects by instrumenting health aspects (via an armband / wrist strap), the smartphone of the participant (via a lightweight agent), and the social network (offline via Bluetooth LE beacons, online via social networks).
Aug-12-2014 Thesis Congratulations to Mr. Ben Bockstege for successfully defending his Master's thesis entitled "The Motion-Based Gaming Peripheral Management (MBP-M) Framework For Robust and Accurate Program Device Interaction."
Aug-12-2014 Conference At last week's inaugural HotData at ICCCN, I filled in for one of the missing panelists. Very fun panel and thanks to the organizers for letting me hop in with the esteemed group of panelists. My slide deck can be found here.
Jul-13-2014 Conference Our paper entitled "A Management System for Motion-Based Gaming Peripherals for Physical Therapy Instrumentation" was recently accepted into IEEE Healthcom.
Jun-05-2014 Conference In addition to our paper on D2D caching, we also have an invited paper at MobiSPC 2014 as well. The paper entitled "LTE and WiFi: Experiences with Quality and Consumption" focuses on the impact of UE (user element, aka the mobile device) WiFi quality as well as the transitional effects of 3G vs. LTE vs. WiFi. A fairly data rich paper that is a nice follow up to our earlier work from 2012 in CellNet.
Jun-03-2014 Conference Our paper entitled "Evaluating the Raw Potential for Device-to-Device Caching via Co-Location" was accepted to appear in MobiSPC 2014. The paper was written by Xueheng Hu and Lei Meng and focuses propagation rates and maximum storage requirements for D2D caching amongst mobile devices.
May-23-2014 PhD Proposal Congratulations to Lei Meng who successfully passed her PhD proposal. Her work is focusing on the intersection of our NetSense smartphone study and graph-wise evolution of social networks.
Apr-15-2014 Alumni Excellent article on Heartbleed vulnerabilities for mobile devices by Dr. Andrew Blaich, a NetScale alum who is at Bluebox.
Mar-21-2014 PhD Congratulations to Dr. Dirk Van Bruggen on becoming the ninth PhD from the NetScale group. Dirk will be joining the Department of Defense in April.
Feb-26-2014 PhD Congratulations to Dr. Shu Liu on becoming the eighth PhD from the NetScale group. Shu will be joining Yammer in March.
Feb-09-2014 Conference Our paper entitled "Analyzing the Impact of Proximity, Location and Personality on Smartphone Usage" was accepted to appear at the Dynamic Social Networks (DySON) workshop at INFOCOM this coming year.
Feb-04-2014 Conference Prof. Striegel recently attended the Google Social Interactions Retreat. Fantastic group of academics and Google folks to interact with.
Dec-09-2013 Conference Our paper entitled "Systematic Dynamic and Heterogeneous Analysis of Rich Social Network Data" was accepted to appear as a full paper in CompleNet 2014 (5th Workshop on Complex Networks). The paper will be presented at the workshop this coming March. The work focuses on the impact that timescale has with regards to construction / observations of network evolution through the lens of our NetSense dataset. Congratulations to Lei Meng on her first lead author publication.
Nov-14-2013 Conference Prof. Striegel recently led a panel at CCW (Computer Communications Workshop) 2013 in Niagara Falls, Canada discussing Smartphone Systems. The panel explored the experiences of several faculty (Yingying Chen, Yanyong Zhang, and Murit Demirbas) in leading small scale to larger scale testbeds. Many thanks in particular to the faculty members for sharing their views as part of the panel. The source slides for each of the panelists as well as Prof. Striegel's slides are posted on-line.
