Patrick's research interests fall under the broad heading of reliable, robust, and secure networking. His research focuses on identifying and managing issues which impact network reliability, performance, interoperability, privacy, and security in wireless networks and networked systems. His goal is to achieve a better understanding of network operation leading to the ability to design protocols and systems that provide seamless operation and transparent service in the face of uncertainty, failure, and attack. Current research is focused in the realm of mobile ad-hoc and mesh networks, where network dynamics, mobility, and resource constraints play a critical role in designing practical solutions.
