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.
