Research Projects

  • France Telecom, Deutsche Telekom, General Motors.
  • My major research deals with the topics related to the fields of Algorithms
  • Design, Data communication and Data Structures. I'm interested in determining computational diffculty of solving certain specific problem
  • or families of problems. The problems that I am concerned with are
  • fundamental optimization problems that have applications in transportation,
  • station placement, communication, facility location, graph theory, statistics,
  • selection, geometric pattern matching, layout of VLSI circuits and
  • enumeration.
  • While a part my research is based on a standard sequential deterministic
  • model of computation, I am also interested in both parallel and distributed
  • models of computation and the use of probabilistic algorithms.
  • Last several years, I am working in the area of mobile wireless networks
  • and security. My main interests there are to discover the topological nature
  • and combinatorial properties of the networks problems that deal with location
  • tracking, distributed computation, sending messages and connectivity of the users.
