Arda NuralSpatial Information Science & Engineering
University of MaineOrono, ME
Arda Nural was born in Ankara, Turkey. He received his MS in Information Technology at Rochester Institute of Technology, NY in 2003. He received his B.Sc diploma in Urban and Regional Planning Department from Middle East Technical University (METU) in Ankara, Turkey in 1996. Between 1996 and 2000 he completed graduate coursework in Geodetic and Geographic Information Technologies Department at METU and also worked as a fulltime multimedia programmer.
Currently he is pursuing a Ph.D degree in Spatial Information Science & Engineering Department under supervision of Dr. Silvia Nittel. He is a member of the Geo-sensor Networks Laboratory of SIE Department.
“My current research interests are:
Data management methods in ad-hoc geo-sensor networks:
Wireless geo-sensors networks are formed by of energy and computationally constrained, communication enabled, small sized sensor nodes deployed in large amounts in the geographic area of interest. In general, the aim is to obtain quantitative measures of temporal and spatial variations in the physical environment, such as temperature levels, gas composition in an area etc.
My interest in this area focuses on data aggregation and in-network processing of the collected spatial data from the nodes. For further information please visit our group's web page. www.geosensornetworks.net
Route Planning in Dynamic Traffic Networks:
Travelling from one location to another in a dynamic and large transportation system might be a complex process. Various modes of travelling, schedules, traffic condtions, knowledge about the available transportation network and many other parameters affect our daily transportations. My interest in this area is to investigate how can the travel demands of a user be facilitated? My particular interest is investigating wireless communication technologies and their potential uses in carpooling and ride-sharing concepts.
Grid computing for digital libraries:
For the 2005 academic year I was granted research assistantship from Fogler Library of University Maine. I am currently researching grid computing and its possible uses for digital libraries domain.”
