March 2020: Collaboration with University of Bristol and Technical University of Denmark on on-board activity classification for wearables is accepted in MDPI Sensors.

October 2019: The paper on SPHERE TSCH has been accepted in the ACM Transactions on Internet of Things.

On the SPHERE project (smart homes for healthcare): on the low-power wireless infrastructure for the 100-homes deployment, on lessons learned from using the Contiki OS, on feature extraction on wearables for daily activity recognition of the participants.

On the Time Slotted Channel Hopping (TSCH) network protocol: mobility in TSCH, sub-GHz TSCH network, TSCH for Contiki, channel selection, scheduling, simulation, the TSCH implementation on CC2650, and time synchronization using TSCH (1) (2).

Highlights of research positions

  • Research Associate in Internet of Things Networking at the University of Bristol and a core member of the SPHERE interdisciplinary research collaboration (IRC).

  • Researcher at SICS Swedish ICT (now RISE SICS), 2015. Atis was a member of the Networked Embedded Systems Group and participated in implementing the IEEE 802.15.4 TSCH protocol in the Contiki operating system.

  • Researcher at Uppsala University, 2014-2015. Atis was involved in the ProFuN project (A Programming Platform for Future Wireless Sensor Networks), where his contribution was the ProFuN TG, a tool for developing and managing sensor network applications that are aware of performance requirements.

  • Research assistant at the Institute of Electronics and Computer Science (IECS or EDI, Riga, Latvia), 2010-2013, and PhD student at University of Latvia. Atis’ PhD thesis describes a software framework designed to facilitate wireless sensor network programming.
