My research interests are in networked, wireless, and computer systems with a recent focus on big-data and cloud networking, UAV networks, optical wireless, spectrum sharing and cyber-security, public safety communications, network architectures and economics, online network management, and network science. My older work, with occasional current activity, has included wireless routing, multicast, peer-to-peer and overlays, and network simulation.
My research group is part of the Computer Networking Lab (CNL), for which I am the Founding Director. Our work spans both theoretical and experimental aspects of computer and networked systems research. I am a strong believer in inter-disciplinary research and much of our work has been collaborative with experts from fields other than networking like economics, math, management/policy sciences, and physics.
Here is a list of some of our current projects:
