Arial;">I am an associate professor of ECSE at RPI. My research is in the area of computer communication networks. I studied EE in my <a href="http://www.eng.cu.edu.eg/CUFE/DeanWord/tabid/56/Default.aspx">undergrad</a> and <a href="http://www.ee.washington.edu/">grad</a> days, though if your field is computer networks you are bound to take a lot of CS courses too. I worked as an engineer at various places before and during my PhD, including <a href="http://www.alcatel-lucent.com">Alcatel</a>, <a href="http://www.hrl.com/">HRL</a> and <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AlliedSignal">AlliedSignal</a>- now <a href="http://honeywell.com/Pages/Home.aspx">Honeywell</a>. I was fortunate to have advisors from <a href="http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/">MSR</a> and <a href="http://www.boeing.com/bds/phantom_works/index.html">Boeing Phantom Works</a> on my PhD committee. After tenure at RPI, I took a leave of absence for 2 years to work as a program director for <a href="http://www.nsf.gov/div/index.jsp?div=CNS">CNS</a> at <a href="http://www.nsf.gov/">NSF</a>, <a href="http://www.nsf.gov/dir/index.jsp?org=cise">CISE</a> directorate. It was stimulating and extremely informative to work on a number of core and interdisciplinary programs. At NSF, I helped cofound a new MPS/CISE/ENG/SBE initiative called <a href="http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=503480">EARS</a> for radio spectrum efficiency, and supported interest in CISE/BIO biologically enabled wireless networks.<o:p></o:p></span></p> <div style="border-style: none none double; border-color: -moz-use-text-color -moz-use-text-color windowtext; border-width: medium medium 2.25pt; padding: 0in 0in 1pt;"> <div style="border-style: none none double; border-color: -moz-use-text-color -moz-use-text-color windowtext; border-width: medium medium 2.25pt; padding: 0in 0in 1pt;"> <div style="border-style: none none double; border-color: -moz-use-text-color -moz-use-text-color windowtext; border-width: medium medium 2.25pt; padding: 0in 0in 1pt;"> <p class="paragraphstyle" style="border: medium none ; padding: 0in;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p> </div> </div> </div> <p class="paragraphstyle"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><b><span style="font-size: 19pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(0, 17, 106);">Research<o:p></o:p></span></b></p> <p class="paragraphstyle"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p> <p class="paragraphstyle"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;">My research in the field of computer <span class="GramE">networks has</span> focused on a theme which I call variable topology networks. I have focused a lot of my efforts on wireless networks, but I could not resist tackling some interesting problems in the areas of (wired) Internet, social, and <span class="GramE">peer to peer</span> networks. My main interest has been to find ways to understand how networks behave at scale, and how to design computer communication protocols so that they provide better performance more efficiently in the face of uncertainties. To be able to guarantee the performance in a proven and predictable way is quite challenging in today s variable networks. <o:p></o:p></span></p> <p class="paragraphstyle"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p> <p class="paragraphstyle"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;">Some key theoretical tools used include: stochastic processes, information theory, optimization theory, queuing theory, <span class="GramE">randomized</span> algorithms, graph theory.<o:p></o:p></span></p> <p class="paragraphstyle"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p> <p class="paragraphstyle"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;">Protocols considered include: dynamic spectrum access, routing, flow control, search &amp; replication, mobility control.<o:p></o:p></span></p> <p class="paragraphstyle"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p> <div style="border-style: none none double; border-color: -moz-use-text-color -moz-use-text-color windowtext; border-width: medium medium 2.25pt; padding: 0in 0in 1pt;"> <div style="border-style: none none double; border-color: -moz-use-text-color -moz-use-text-color windowtext; border-width: medium medium 2.25pt; padding: 0in 0in 1pt;"> <div style="border-style: none none double; border-color: -moz-use-text-color -moz-use-text-color windowtext; border-width: medium medium 2.25pt; padding: 0in 0in 1pt;"> <p class="paragraphstyle" style="border: medium none ; padding: 0in;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;">Networks studied include: Internet, Mobile sensor networks, Camera sensor networks, Mesh networks, Mobile Ad Hoc Networks and Cellular Networks.<o:p></o:p></span></p> <p class="paragraphstyle" style="border: medium none ; padding: 0in;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p> </div> </div> </div> <p class="paragraphstyle"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><b><span style="font-size: 19pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(0, 17, 106);">Projects<o:p></o:p></span></b></p> <p class="paragraphstyle"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p> <p class="paragraphstyle" style="margin-left: 0.5in; text-indent: -0.25in;"><!--[if !supportLists]--><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Symbol;"><span style=""><span style="font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; font-size: 7pt; line-height: normal; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal;">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span></span></span><!--[endif]--><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;"><a href="http://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward.do?AwardNumber=1158411"><span class="SpellE">WiFiUS</span>: A Virtual Institute for Wireless Research between Finland and USA.</a> <o:p></o:p></span></p> <p class="paragraphstyle" style="margin-left: 0.5in;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;">This is an NSF-SAVI project.
