I am an Associate Professor and the Chair of the Computer Science Department at NJIT, where I have been since receiving my Ph.D. from Rutgers in 2004. I also hold a Visiting Associate Professor appointment at the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo, Japan. My research interests include: mobile computing & sensing; ad hoc & vehicular networks; and cloud & distributed systems. More specifically, I focus on designing, implementing, and evaluating system architectures, network protocols, middleware, programming models, and security mechanisms for networked systems. I always look forward to working with highly motivated students on current or new research projects.
