Dr Pamela Bezerra

Researcher, External Collaborator


Hello everyone, my name is Pamela Bezerra, and I’m a Computer Engineer with a PhD in Computer Science at Imperial College London. For 4 years (2015 – 2019) I’ve worked as a PhD student at AESE Group, studying energy optimisation and efficient failure localisation strategies for Wireless Sensor Networks. Nowadays, I still collaborate with the members of AESE group, working on safety, resilience, and security for IoT systems.

In my PhD Thesis, I’ve developed solutions for efficient failure localisation in wireless sensor networks, with a focus on the network tomography and monitor placement problems. Network tomography is a technique for estimating the network performance parameters based on end-to-end measurements at a subset of nodes called monitors. These monitors are capable of generating data probes, which move along predefined paths to measure path conditions (e.g., Delay and PDR). More details on this research project can be found here.

I have a bachelor degree (BSc) in Computer Engineering and a Master Degree (MSc) in Computer Science from the Federal University of Pernambuco, UFPE – Brazil. As a Master student, I’ve studied Context-Awareness and other AI techniques for optimising the energy consumption of mobile devices according to each user profile. At this period, I’ve also worked as a Researcher Assistant Samsung/UFPE project, developing AI solutions for Samsung Smartphones.

Apart from IoT and Wireless Communications, my research interests include Distributed Systems, Graph Theory, Convex Optimisation, Machine Learning and Data Visualization for IoT, and Energy Consumption Optimisation for networked systems.
