Ph.D, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, Major: Computer Engineering,
Research areas: Mobile Computing, Wireless Networks, Handoff Optimization, and
Adaptable Network Protocols, Linear Prediction, Network Emulation
Description: Simulating Mobility was providing bogus results for a realistic environment, an emulation approach was required to test new protocols. RAMON was created to fix this situation (‘330 Patent) and a Mobile protocol that adapted to speed as also invented and tested using the RAMON environment (‘508 and ‘417 Patents)
Dissertation: An Adaptive Networking Protocol for Rapid Mobility Environments
Advisor: Dr. Sumi Helal,
Graduation Date: August 2002
M.Sc., University of Florida, Gainesville, FL. Major: Electrical and Computer Engineering
Research areas: Computer Networks and Intelligent and Information Systems,
Thesis: Adaptive Sampling for Network Management
Description: A protocol using fuzzy logic controllers that would adapt sampling rates in a network management platform that performed better than random sampling and depending on the Hurst parameter on simulated network traffic would collect enough information from the traffic patter and would adapt sampling rate accordingly.
