Kasım Sinan Yıldırım


Welcome to my homepage! I am currently an associate professor at the University of Trento, Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science. I created this website to share the output of my studies and be reachable.

I am interested in the research problems of low-power and networked embedded sensing systems. Together with my learning partners, we study sensor networks, wireless protocols, self-organizing and distributed algorithms, operating systems/run-times, architectural support, digital design, intermittent computing, and tiny machine learning. I am a member of HIPEAC community.

You can find more info about me here. Source codes I have developed in the past are here.

You can check ENT-Lab Research Group to see the brilliant researchers I am working together and our software releases.
