After his PhD in Applied Mathematics at the University of Namur (Belgium), Dr. Johan Barthélemy joined the SMART Infrastructure Facility of the University of Wollongong where he is a Research Fellow. He is now leading the SMART IoT Hub and the Digital Living Lab developing sensors and edge computing devices for IoT applications using LPWAN networks including connected beer kegs, smart cameras and water level monitoring and low cost gas sensing.
In addition he also works on the development of new tools and frameworks to simulate large scale agent-based microsimulation. This include i) the design of synthetic population generators to build a disagregated database of the system’s entities; and ii) the development of microsimulations to simulate and observe the agents’ behaviour. Applications of this work include transportation modelling and disease spreading which can involve millions of agents.
