Short Bio

I’m a Professor 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 Distinguished Member of the ACM and a Senior Member of the IEEE.

Research

My research mostly falls in the areas of wireless networks and mobile systems but increasingly intersects with (edge) cloud computing, applied machine learning and security/privacy. Recent focus has been on various facets of emerging 5G mobile networking systems. Within Informatics@Edinburgh, I'm a member of the Networks Research Group as well as the Security and Privacy group.
