Research Interests

Research interests include Computer Networks and Distributed Systems, their Dependability, Management, and Algorithms. In particular I have been working on the dependability of practical TCP/IP based applications, Internet-based distributed systems, resilient routing, system-level diagnosis and fault-tolerant network monitoring. Here is a list of funded research projects; and here is a list of awards received.
