Projects

My research interests lie in designing computational tools, protocols, mathematical models, and combinatorial algorithms with guaranteed performance measures for the design and analysis of computer networks. Recent projects include:

  • Path exposure and intrusion detection reliability problems in wireless sensor networks
  • Location uncertainty problems in underwater sensor networks
  • Mobility aspects in RFID systems
  • Policy analysis in the design of firewalls and software defined networks
  • Quality-of-service provisioning in wireless cellular networks
  • Resource management in multi-hop wireless mesh networks
