Interests: Her research concentrates on a wide range of problems in the way complex sociotechnical systems are functioning today and can be (re-)shaped for a sustainable future. She is an expert on modeling and analyzing systems in the energy and industry domain. The questions she works on concern investigation of supporting technology and emerging institutions for the transition towards future sustainable energy systems
Due to the rapid proliferation of smart sensors and meters, wearable devices and smartphone, the Internet of Things enabled technology is evolving infrastructure from conventional operation and maintenance business model to more efficient, sustainable, and smart and resilience system. Currently there are IoT smart applications in energy, home, building, water and cities. Such as smart devices are already being used at home, building and infrastructure without human intervention. However, empowering the utility of IoT enabled technology in infrastructure is still significantly challenging in the area considering shortage of cost-effective and accurate smart sensors and meters, unstandardized IoT system architectures, heterogeneity of wearable devices connected, high demand for interoperability. Also, complexity will be an important factor to study and control: The behaviour of every single node in IoT will need to be considered to determine its potential impact on the whole system. These above challenges and needs grant a lot of opportunities to explore and investigate new concepts, algorithms and applications in IoT enabled smart infrastructure. The central theme of the proposed special issue is on the development and application of advanced internet of things technologies for smart infrastructure, where smart sensing technologies, IoT architectures, services, applications, and data analytics for infrastructure applications are the focus areas, and broad aspects and issues will be well discussed. The theme of the special issue (SI) is especially focused on the three major aspects of IoT for infrastructure: (1) intelligent monitoring with increased reliability and validity by using a variety of IoT assets or technologies, including sensors, devices and mobile applications. (2) Development of specifications for interoperability and data sharing across services and infrastructures, An interoperable and internet-based IoT infrastructure supporting heterogeneous devices to access, share, (3) Creation of ecosystems of "Platforms for Connected Smart Objects", integrating the future generations of smart devices (i.e. sensors) and network technologies and other evolving ICT advances.
