Current Research

My current research focuses on several projects in the areas listed above. A representative sample of active grant funded projects I am leading is as follows:

Light-Speed Networking: A research effort aimed at reducing network latencies
to speed-of-light limits in wireless edge networks so as to dramatically
improve ultra-low-latency-sensitive applications such as Augmented Reality,
Virtual Reality, Tactile Networking, etc.

Service Dispersability: A research effort developing a platform enabling online
service providers to massively geo-distribute their services in a manner
requiring little change to legacy applications.

Contextual Communication: A novel communication paradigm enabling agile and
targeted communication based on real-time changing attributes such as people's
geolocation, special needs, preferences, etc.

Hazardous weather warning: A project focusing on establishing a
pre-translational proof-of-concept of the contextual communication technology
for hazardous weather warning.

(5) Other
projects on Internet architecture, vehicular networks, etc.
