Biography

Research Interests

Research/Scholarly Activities

Research and Creative Activities:

Research interests include:

Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) and Multimedia Networking: Analysis of protocols and techniques used in video streaming over IP networks. Investigating IPTV service quality models to address various quality issues such as video pixilation and channel zapping period.

Voice over IP: Study and investigate the impact of various network parameters on the quality of voice calls for voice over IP services.

Data Networks Quality of Service: Monitoring and modeling of network performance to correlatethe parameters measured at one network layer to those measured at the layers above it. This approach is used to develop an end-to-end quality of service model which correlates service quality impurities observed by the user to network performance parameters measured at lower layers.

Electronic Commerce: Studying electronic commerce infrastructure using Near Field Communication (NFC) mobile phones to improve financial and business transactions.

Established and launched a new Computer Networks Lab to be used in teaching undergraduate as well as graduate courses and added the IPTV and VoIP infrastructures to be used for IPTV and VoIP research.

Designed and developed a VoIP Traffic Analyzer software application that correlates the traffic captured from the two ends of the phone call and calculates important VoIP quality metrics such as, latency, jitter, packet loss, and mean opinion score (MOS).

Designed and implemented a software probe that uses Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) to collect various traffic quality metrics for different network services.

Designed and implemented a game that illustrates how the Distance Victor (DV) RoutingAlgorithm works.
