Research interests:
  • Internet For Things (I4T): Engineering the Internet to become a unified, resilient and reliable communications platform for billions of humans and orders of magnitude more devices embedded in our built environments.
  • Anything to do with IP network infrastructure (such as performance, cybersecurity, scalability, resilience and monitoring) that ultimately impacts on an end-user's experience of 'the internet'
  • Implementing and experimentally evaluating IP transport protocols and their collateral impact on real-time services
  • Fast-paced, multiplayer online games and their interactions with the underlying IP network infrastructure 
  • Immersive tools for real-time visualisation of IP network conditions and collaborative inquiry/control of network devices
  • Minimally-intrusive IP traffic clasification schemes and network monitoring (for various purposes)
  • Covert channels over IP networks - construction, evaluation and detection 
  • Improving the energy efficiency of IP networking
  • Network layer spam mitigation
  • Mobile networks and the implications of networks with more bandwidth around the edge than in the core
