Aleksandar Matic

Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing, Data Mining and User Modeling

Aleksandar Matic is an Associate Researcher at Telefonica I&D. Prior to joining Telefonica, he was a researcher at CREATE-NET in Italy for 5 years. Aleksandar obtained his PhD degree in Telecommunications from the University of Trento, Italy in May 2012.

His research interests line in mobile and ubiquitous computing, personal data analysis, context-aware systems, computational social sciences, and health informatics. Aleksandar’s current work is focused on data mining and machine learning techniques to understand individuals’ characteristics and their behaviour and on exploring how to use this information to improve the quality of life.
