Hi, I'm a first year PhD student in the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) working with professor Eytan Modiano. Our primary are of research is Routing in Mobile Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks (MANet's). So far so good - Research is a lot of fun, it's just too bad classes get in the way! :)
My masters research focused primarily on issues related to reliability and energy-efficiency in wireless ad-hoc networks at the network-layer. Our paper, which recently got accepted to Mobicom 2003, Minimum Energy Routing in Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks, details one of the problems we solved. Other research included spare capacity allocation to increase reliability in Ad-Hoc networks.
My PhD research is just getting started. It will likely stay in Wireless Networking, but will try and incorporate the problems and challenges posed by introducing highly mobile nodes, such as UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) into the picture. This also ties into my work with the MDPP/PCUAV (MIT-Draper Partnership Program/Parent-Child Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) project, headed by professor John Deyst.
I was born in Canada, in 1979. I completed my Bachelors of Applied Science in Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto in 2001. I completed my Masters of Science in 2003 at the Massachusetts Institue of technology.
