International Development Research @ Cambridge



Dr Andrés Arcia-Moret is a Senior Research Associate at the Department of Computer Science and Technology. He has also been affiliated to the University of Los Andes - Mérida, Venezuela, lecturing and participating in academic initiatives in various Latin American countries including Colombia, Ecuador, Haiti, Guatemala, and Argentina.


Based in various research institutions and universities in Europe and Latin America, Andrés has worked for over a decade on one of the fundamental problems of the future internet: how it can be scaled to the vast, underserved areas where two thirds of the world’s population lives through the development of sustainable and low-cost solutions.


Recently Andrés has been working on IoT Spectrum Monitoring in the Smart Cambridge initiative. In this context, he is developing a community architecture for smart cities built from the bottom up. He has also been investigating innovative wireless technologies such as long-distance WiFi, WiMAX, TV White Spaces, and morerecently LoRaWAN and SigFox.


The clear synergy between an affordable Internet of Things and Community Network infrastructure and organisation in developing regions, where it is most needed, motivates Andrés to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and participate in Cambridge Global Challenges.
