Research Interests

Scalable QoS Switch Architecture

Design and implementation of scalable switch architectures for large networks with varying quality of service. In addition to performance design metrics, implementation metrics such as power, space, and cost effectiveness are explored in the design of switch architectures.

Converged Network Architectures

Design of unifying network architectures based on GMPLS control plane for various existing and future services. Research issues include intelligent traffic management, secure and fault-tolerant control plane, management of multi-layer and cross-layer interactions, and optimization of network resources in multi-layer networks.

System Management of VM based Cloud Computing

Design and development of control and management system for heterogeneous and virtualized computing clusters. Research issues include VM dependency in resource allocation, VM process migration, power optimization, and dependable & fault-tolerant operation.
