|I am a professor at the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University. I am also a member of CERIAS (the Center for Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security). My current research interests lie in the areas of network architectures and protocols, specifically network measurement and management, network security, network simulation and testbeds, and wireless and sensor networks.|
Our current research projects are funded by the National Science Foundation.
Prior projects have been funded by
the Department of Homeland Security, Cisco Systems, Hewlett-Packard,
Northrop Grumman Corp, Raytheon/BBN, the Schlumberger Foundation,
the Purdue Research Foundation, and CERIAS.
(1) Cloud and virtualization: We are designing placement and scaling strategies for virtualized network functions, and algorithms for efficient data center and cloud management;
(2) Network experimentation and security: We are developing methodologies and benchmarks for network evaluation, including security mechanisms for VoIP and multimedia services.

(3) Network measurement and management: We are inferring and learning information about network topology, availability, bottlenecks, bandwidth, latency, and loss, and exploiting this information for adapting and managing networks and applications. Click here for our GENI project web page;
(4) Wireless networks: We are designing routing and diagnosis protocols for wireless and sensor networks.
