Research Interests

    • Distributed Algorithms and Systems: Dynamic distributed systems (i.e., systems with churn). Specification, implementation, and application of distributed shared data structures and their consistency models. Randomized distributed data structures and algorithms for improved fault-tolerance and efficiency.
    • Wireless Mobile Computing: Design and analysis of distributed algorithms for various problems in wireless, mobile communication systems and wireless sensor networks. Design and analysis of solutions for wireless security problems. Spatiotemporal algorithms and analysis for mobile computing.
    • Fault-Tolerant Computing and Reliable Computing: Development of practical attack models and defense systems, particularly in Byzantine (arbitrary) faulty computing environments. Development of distributed server systems that can better sustain denial of service attacks.
