Research

Area

Communication Networks

Interests

Networks, resource management, wireless networks, sensor networks, mobile ad hoc networks, network design, performance evaluation.

Summary

The challenge of networks today is to accommodate a wide variety of applications with different service requirements on the same network. Research areas of interest include mobile computing, ad hoc networks, wireless sensor networks, Internet protocols, and network design. The research projects that I am interested in all have common threads of resource allocation and performance evaluation.The tools I use in my research include simulation, queueing analysis, combinatorial methods, operations research and measurement.
