Current research interests

  • His general interests revolve around the application of different mathematical tools and/or cross-disciplinary approaches to solve or better understand difficult networking problems.
  • The analytical tools used include stochastic modeling, transient analysis of random walks, fluid approximations and mean-field analysis, statistical learning theory, complex network analysis, and graph theory, while the areas of application are Delay Tolerant Networks, Mobility Modeling, Intelligent Transportation Systems, Social Networks, and Traffic classification.
  • His recent research efforts include: (i) the study of macroscopic (long term) properties of human and vehicular mobility, and their links to social network analysis, (ii) performance analysis frameworks for distributed optimization and distributed estimation over mobile peer-to-peer networks, and (iii) traffic classification using flow data.
