Time sensitive networking, Grid, Cloud, Fog computing, Clustering, P2P and Web Service; Security and QoS in Computer Networks; MAC protocols and Integration of Computer Networks; Performance Modelling/Evaluation of Computer Networks; Mesh networks, Sensor networks, IEEE 802.11, IEEE 802.15 and IEEE 802.16

Vision Statement

Recent advances in mobile and wireless networking has been tremendous in the past decade. The applied research is evolving in deploying campus wide wireless network, designing static and mobile networks with Cloud connection and setting wireless sensor network in diverse environment. Among this major research direction, challenges still remain for design, deploy and evaluate novel protocol, system architecture and topology design. An Internet of everything is envisioned to be the future of networking. I am committed to develop novel protocols, network models to fulfil this vision by means of simulation, real testbed development and performance modelling.
