Simone Ferlin is a telecom engineer and has a PhD from the Simula Research Lab and University of Oslo, Norway.
Her interests are primarily in computer networks – wired and wireless. She contributes to transport protocols and congestion control, multipath transport, network performance and security assessment and data analysis. Her past research also includes signal processing for wireless communication systems. Her dissertation focuses on improving robustness in multipath transport. Although the multipath promises are great, increasing both throughput and resilience, it comes with challenges when the underlying network paths are heterogeneous — challenges which Simone’s dissertation addressed working with Multipath TCP (MPTCP).
Simone received her Dipl.-Ing. in Information Technology from Friedrich-Alexander Universitaet Erlangen-Nuernberg, Germany in 2010 and her PhD in Computer Science from the University of Oslo in 2017. She worked in in the NorNet project, which is a real-world large-scale multi-homing testbed for experimental research. She is also very interested in biodiversity conservation and ways to integrate technology into environmental monitoring.
