I lead the research efforts in the Wisconsin
Advanced Network Design, Experimentation, and Research (WANDER)laboratory.
The primary research focus of this laboratory is on developing the
architectures, the protocols, and the mechanisms needed to meet
the diverse service requirements of emerging applications in
cellular, wireless ad hoc, and wireline networks. One of
the research thrusts involves developing communication support
for sustaining end-to-end gigabit throughputs to mobile hosts
in future Internet. In addition to developing the necessary theoretical
algorithms, we are also implementing and experimenting with these
algorithms on national networking testbed called
Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI).
%In another research thrust, we are developing
%techniques for information exchange and collaborative decision-making
%in stationary and mobile microsensor networks. One of the ongoing research projects
%in this area involves in-field calibration and use of on-chip temperature
%sensors for managing the thermal profile of multicore processors
%both during manufacturing testing and during execution of real-time
More recently, I have been working in the area of genomic networks.
In a collaborative project with researchers from Biochemistry, Chemistry,
and Chemical and Biological Engineering, my group is working on developing
computational tools for genome foundries and genome-aided biodesign.
In the past, I have also worked on the problem of real-time and
in distributed computing systems. I have also published
in the area of fault-tolerant computing on problems such as clock
checkpointing and rollback recovery, memory testing, and resource
Funding for this research have come federal agencies like National
Foundation (NSF), Defense Advanced Project Research Agency (DARPA),
States Army Research Office, and industries like Cisco, AT&T,
Technologies, Johnson Controls,
Westell Technologies, and Chrysler Motors Corporation.
