In addition to publishing scientific papers, she is the author of patents and also participates in standardization groups in the areas of wireless and multimedia communications, quality of experience definition and management, and 2D/3D image and video quality assessment (e.g., IEEE 1907.1 and IEEE P3333.1).

About the School of Computing and Information Systems (CIS) at Kingston University

The CIS School at Kingston University offers undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs in the areas of Computing, Information Systems, Networking and Data Communications, Network and Information Security, Embedded Systems, and Digital Media. MSc Course in Networking and Data Communications Our MSc in Networking and Data Communications provides students with a deep understanding of the technical characteristics of networking and data communication systems, and with the tools for systems design and deployment. The course covers specialized topics ranging from traditional information theory and digital communications and networking principles to modern paradigms in the areas of wireless communications, multimedia communications, and network and information security. Research undertaken within the CIS School—and in particular in the Wireless Multimedia and Networking (WMN) Research Group—informs the course content, whilst the school’s Industrial Advisory Panel helps ensure that this content meets business needs. Industrial and international links are key, with students benefiting from guest lectures from industrial partners, as well as international academics. Students are expected to study four 30-credit modules in one year, including practical project-based exercises. In addition to the taught modules, the course culminates in an individual “capstone” project. Assessment for most modules is via coursework and examination on a specific topic
