About Me

I'm Miguel Elias Mitre Campista, born in the beautiful city of Niterói, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I received my Telecommunications Engineering degree from the Fluminense Federal University (UFF), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2003 and my M.Sc. and D.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2005 and 2008, respectively. I'm an associate professor with the Electronic and Computer Engineering Department of Poli/UFRJ and a full professor with the Electrical Engineering Program (PEE) of COPPE/UFRJ. I have spent one year as an invited Professor with LIP6 at the UPMC Sorbonne Universit√©, in France. I've been ranked researcher level 2 from the Brazilian government (CNPq), awarded Young Scientist of Rio de Janeiro State ("Jovem Cientista do Nosso Estado") from FAPERJ, and elected Affiliate Member of the Brazilian Academy of Science (ABC). I'm an Associate Editor of the Annals of Telecommunications journal and an IEEE senior member.

I'm a member of the Grupo de Teleinformática e Automação (GTA) team, a really inspiring lab full of exceptional people. My ORCID ID is 0000-0002-8752-9382 and my ResearcherID is G-3402-2012.


May-2018 Our paper "SensingBus: Using Bus Lines and Fog Computing for Smart Sensing the City" was accepted for publication in IEEE Cloud Computing Magazine!
Dec-2017 Our paper "Impact of Relative Speed on Node Vicinity Dynamics in VANETs" was accepted for publication in Wireless Networks!
Dec-2017 I became an Affiliate Member of the Brazilian Academy of Science!
Dec-2017 The WPerformance workshop I'm co-chairing was accepted as a satellite event in CSBC 2018.

Main Research Interests

Computer Networking: This research area is broad enough to include many topics on networking that really catches my attention. I'm always an enthusiast about new Internet architectures, communication protocols, and applications. Nevertheless, in the last few years most works have addressed wireless networking and mobility. This includes many hot topics such as IoT and vehicular networking.
Cloud Computing: In this research area, I'm currently investigating new architectures and the interaction between cloud and mobile users. I have mainly used OpenStack, which alone brings already a lot of complexity. The deployment of the fog and also the data produced by users are challenges also addressed.
Network Science: In this research area, the focus is on graph modeling of dynamic systems including mobile and social networks. The idea is to reveal network information using different approaches, such as data mining techniques and new centrality metrics.
