My research interests are in computer networks and data communication. They encompass congestion control, network measurements, scalability and robustness of communication systems, differentiated services, Internet pricing, routing, content distribution, peer-to-peer systems, self-configurable and wireless networks, and network security. I have a particular interest in adapting tools from various fields of applied mathematics such as control theory, coding theory, and AI to solve problems in computer networks.
