Research Interests
  • Buffer sizing and management in access networks
    • PhD thesis' title: 
    • Reducing Latency in Internet Access Links with 
    • Mechanisms in Endpoints and within the Network 
    • (defended on 17 June 2015) 
  • TCP congestion control (e.g. Westwood+, CUBIC, HSTCP, CDG and delay-based CCs, ...)
  • Bit-rate selection (rate adaptation) in 802.11 networks (Minstrel, SampleRate, AMRR,...)
  • Performance evaluation and optimization of 802.11 WLANs (PHY/MAC/TCP)
  • Cross-layer interactions in Wi-Fi networks mainly by focusing at transport layer's interaction with PHY/MAC  
  • Active queue management (LAS, RED, Adaptive RED, CoDel, PIE, SFQ-x...)
  • Network Simulation (ns-2, C++, Tcl) and real-life experiments (NDlab testbed,web100, emulab, planetlab,...)
  • Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN) and AQM 

  • Involvement in IETF activities: TAPS, AQM, TCPM, TSVWG, ICCRG, and follows RMCAT, RTCWEB, MPTCP
