In 2000-2004, he served as a senior researcher at Sonera Finland contributing
to performance optimization of GPRS/UMTS networks, intersystem mobility, and
IETF standardization. In 2003, he spent six months as a visiting researcher
in the International Computer Science Institute at Berkeley working with
Dr.Sally Floyd on simulation models of transport protocols in wireless networks.
In 2004, he was a consultant at the Ericsson NomadicLab. Dr. Gurtov is a co-author
of over 35 publications including research papers, patents, and IETF RFCs.
Admitted to the Finnish Union of University Professors at 28, he remains to
