- Research Interests Include:
- Wireless networks. This includes research addressing
ad hoc or mesh networks, mobility support, and management of spectrum
resources. Includes work on spectrum-sharing paradigms, such as
unlicensed spectrum, secondary access, spectrum underlays, spectrum markets.
- Broadband Integrated-Services Networks (or Multimedia Networks), i.e.
networks that support diverse traffic such as voice, video, and
computer communications. Video and voice over IP (VOIP). Research includes
mechanisms to provide adequate quality of service,
architectures for broadband "last-mile" connections
(whether they are over phone, cable TV, or wireless links), traffic
modeling , and pricing of network services.
- Communications systems for homeland security, public safety, emergency responders (firefighters, paramedics, police, public health workers, etc.).
- Regulatory and economic issues of telecommunications, such as the
transition from separate phone and cable TV monopolies to competing
integrated-services carriers, universal service,
and policy issues of the Internet. In the context of both the
US and developing countries.
- Electronic commerce. This research addresses both technical and
policy issues, including protocols for highly secure payment systems, money laundering (PATRIOT), privacy, and taxation.
- Information infrastructure for developing countries.
- Technical and policy issues of network security, protecting critical network infrastructure, post-disaster recovery, protocols for secure networks.
