Current research interests (not in any particular order)

I'm interested in the design, implementation, real deployment, and experimentation of communications protocols, services, and systems for wired and wireless networks. In particular, I have an interest in:
  • Intelligent Transport Systems (V2X communications) 
  • WLANs and mobile adhoc networks
  • Wireless sensor and actuator networks (SANETs)
  • Wireless mesh networks (WMNs)
  • Delay-Tolerant networks (DTNs)
  • Cross-layer design of wireless networks
  • QoS support in wireless networks
  • Radio resource management of heterogeneous wireless networks
  • Wireless emulation and experimentation platforms
  • Wireless social/community networks
  • (Advanced) LTE  wireless networking
Some of my previous research works cover the following area:
  • WiMAX networks
  • Optimization and performance evaluation of wired communications networks
  • Design of the next-generation satellite communications systems
  • Dynamic routing over satellite links
  • Multicast routing in hybrid terrestrial-satellite networks
  • Buffer management and scheduling algorithms for multicast traffic
  • Multicast over DiffServ architecture
