Software:

My programming experience includes designing, writing, debugging, and documenting hundreds of programs. Only major work is listed below. The projects where I was the sole designer, implementer, and documenter are marked with `*'.

Design, modeling, and performance of communication protocols:

Wireless Sensor Networks: designed and developed a number of commercial WSN solutions (with W. Olesinski), including an industrial-grade asset monitoring system, location-tracking systems, EcoNet (a massive ecological monitoring system), ILIAD (Independent Living Inconspicuous Anomaly Detector), and PINDA: a prototype WSN facilitating social interactions at conferences and gatherings.

Publications:

Note: being a practically-oriented researcher, I have never been picky about publication venues, viewing the bureaucratic side of publishing as a serious waste of time and an impediment to creativity. Consequently, some important papers of mine (those that I consider important, anyway) have been published in second class venues, mostly because they might appear “controversial” and I didn't want to fight to get them published in more "prominent" places. In the following lists, the titles of those papers that I consider particularly important or interesting are marked with *.

Books:

  1. P. Gburzynski. "Protocol Design for Local and Metropolitan Area Networks." Prentice Hall, 1996. Note: even though this book is outdated, it still provides the most friendly introduction to SMURPH (its most recent version) and also PicOS, which has been derived from SMURPH, and, notably VUEE, which is SMURPH covered with a rather tiny PicOS compatibility layer. In particular, the SMURPH manual will appear considerably more friendly after you have gone through selected chapters from the book.
