Office hours: My door is always open... when I am in! I highly recommend booking a meet in advance to avoid wasting a trip.

Research Interests

Broadly speaking, I am interested in communication and distributed systems. (Publications may be found here.) Though less involved, I am also a fan of network measurement and believe there is too little of it in the world, today.

I am also a staunch advocate of computer science as the science of information. (Brilliant editorials on the subject appear here and here.) Hence, I am always looking for ways to advance the state of the discipline, and our knowledge of it, through inter-disciplinary efforts and collaborations.

Research Opportunities

Ph.D. Students interested in working with me are encouraged to get in touch. I am always enthusiastic about working with bright individuals keen on working in the space of mobile or wireless communication protocols, network algorithms, network measurement, and intelligent or automated management of networks. Co-supervision of interdisciplinary projects is always a possibility, too. Many sources of funding exist. I am quite keen to hear about new ideas; more details on my own research may be found here.

Undergraduate Students interested in research: There are many funding opportunities available to undergraduates who are interested in participating in short-term, well-defined, research projects. Among these are the Nuffield Foundation and the Carnegie Trust. Projects under my supervision might include network measurements, helping to implement and test wireless network protocols, and evaluating methods for information delivery in adverse environments.
