Dr. Roberto Yus is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Previously, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of California, Irvine working with Prof. Sharad Mehrotra in the ISG group and a Ph.D. student at the University of Zaragoza under Prof. Eduardo Mena. He was also a visiting research student at UMBC in 2014 and 2015. His research focuses on the design of semantic data management solutions to empower IoT systems to understand user information requirements and user privacy preferences and adapt their operations taking those into account. He is broadly interested in IoT contexts spanning from smart buildings and spaces to smart water systems. In the past, he also worked in agent systems, location-dependent queries, context-awareness, and multimedia and has have interests in those. I'm also interested in the development and deployment of systems and tools based on my research in the real world. My work on IoT systems at UC Irvine has been deployed in several US campuses.
