I am Naeem Khademi, a former Postdoctoral fellow at the Networks and Distributed Systems group (ND) at the Department of informatics, University of Oslo, Norway, where I worked with Prof. Michael Welzl. I was born in Shiraz, Iran, in 1983, where I studied until High School. I graduated from Kish University (Iran) with a bachelor degree in Computer Software Engineering in September 2006. From December 2007 to February 2010 I studied in Malaysia and received my Master degree in Computer Networks from University Putra Malaysia

In August 2010 I joined the ND group as a PhD candidate and started my research on "Reducing Latency in Internet Access Links with Mechanisms in Endpoints and within the Network". From May 2012 until December 2012 I was a visiting researcher at the Centre for Advanced Internet Architectures (CAIA) at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne- Australia, working within newtcp project in collaboration with Prof. Grenville Armitage. I received my PhD degree in computer networks in June 2015. Right after defending my PhD thesis, and from 2015 until 2018, I was hired at ND/IFI/UiO by H2020-NEAT EU project as a postdoctoral fellow overseeing the development of the NEAT library's core components. NEAT is a flexible service-oriented Internet transport layer API aiming to facilitate the evolution of Internet's transport layer in long-term.     

My research interests are performance analysis, evaluation and optimization of Internet transport layer protocols for low latency services, partly by focusing on their cross-layer interaction with the link layer such as with Wi-Fi access links. These also extend to the development of a new transport API for the future of Internet (NEAT) as well as reducing the end-to-end latency on the Internet access links using Active Queue Management (AQM) mechanisms. I have been a member of two European projects namely FP7-RITE (partly-funded) and H2020-NEAT (fully-funded) and have several years of active participation and contribution to the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).   

Check my publication list or the research page to know in details about my research tools and implementations. If you need to meet me, check my availability in schedule and contact me through this link to make an appointment.

Available Master's Thesis Projects: check below pages if you are interested to pursue your master's project under my advice and supervisory of Prof. Michael Welzl:

  1. Delay-gradient TCP congestion control mechanisms for Linux kernel
  2. Active Queue Management (AQM) strategies for the access links
  3. Implementation of 802.11 rate-adaptation mechanisms in ns-2
  4. 802.11n for ns-2

Notice: if you're a master student at the University of Oslo and interested in taking your project in Networks and Distributed Systems Group under my advisory, send your request by email.

Teachings: I was the course manager of INF3190 (Data Communications) from 2011 until 2014. Find the course-related materials in here

802.11 Wireless Testbed: I am maintaining an 802.11 WLAN testbed located at the NDlab of Networks and Distributed Systems Group at IFI. It consists a number of Dell Optiplex G520 desktop PCs (19 nodes) equipped with 802.11b/g/n NICs with Atheros and Broadcom chipsets and Madwifi/b43 drivers respectively. This work-in-progress wiki page provides some details about this testbed.
