Luca Mottola awarded the International Cor Baayen Award


Luca Mottola is a senior researcher at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science, on our IoT Top 100 Thinkerslist, and now is the winner of this years prestigious Cor Baayen Award.

The annual award is given out to promising young researcher in computer science and applied mathematics. Luca's recent research work on wireless sensor networks, and their programming used in real deployments is what caught the attention at ERCIM (European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics).

"Luca's expertise in wireless sensor networks extends beyond programming. Over time, his research has broadened to embrace a number of diverse topics, from theoretical work on distributed algorithms to formal verification of embedded software and investigations on MAC protocols and low-power wireless.

Luca's results represent a paradigmatic example of how the research activity in a field may have direct real-world impact. The specific field Luca is focusing on holds great potential, as it represents a fundamental building block of the “Internet of Things” vision."
