Profile Summary

The primary research focus of my laboratory is on developing the architectures, the protocols, and the mechanisms needed to meet the diverse service requirements of emerging applications in cellular, wireless ad hoc, and wireline networks. One of the research thrusts involves developing communication support for sustaining end-to-end gigabit throughputs to mobile hosts in future Internet. We are also developing broadband applications that take advantage of gigabit bandwidths to support immersive collaboration across geographically distributed sites. In addition to developing the necessary theoretical algorithms, we are also implementing and experimenting with these algorithms on national networking testbed called Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI). 

More recently, I have been working in the area of genomic networks. In a collaborative project with researchers from Biochemistry, Chemistry,and Chemical and Biological Engineering, my group is working on developing computational tools for genome foundries and genome-aided biodesign.

In the past, I have also worked on the problem of real-time and non-real-time communication in distributed computing systems.  I have also published extensively in the area of fault-tolerant computing on problems such as clock synchronization, checkpointing and rollback recovery, memory testing, and resource placement.
