Energy-Efficient Software

My main research interest is the energy consumption caused by software systems. I investigate the relationship between software and energy through empirical methods. My goal is to establish a sound methodology for making software that consumes less energy.

Smart Energy

I am also interested in how software solutions can optimize the energy consumption of other systems, such as energy networks (Smart Grids) and buildings. I also developed a prototype for a Smart Grid energy management system leveraging Semantic Web technologies.

Most of my research takes place in the Green Lab of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
