I’m a Reader in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh and a Turing Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute. At Edinburgh, I currently also serve as the Director of Institute for Computing Systems Architecture (one of the six research institutes within Informatics). Before joining Edinburgh, I had a two-year postdoctoral stint at the UCLA Computer Science Department in the Mobile Systems Laboratory headed by Prof. Rajive Bagrodia. I earned my PhD in Computer Science in 2004 from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, where my advisor was Prof. Samir Das. I have previously held visiting researcher positions at ETH Zurich and at Ofcom London. I’m a Senior Member of the ACM and the IEEE.
My research broadly falls under networks and distributed systems and in particular within wireless networks and mobile systems. Within Informatics@Edinburgh, I'm a member of the Networks Research Group as well as the Security and Privacy group. My recent and on-going research is on the following topics, focusing mostly on various facets of next-generation (5G) mobile networks:
