I am a professor in the School of Computing at the University of Utah. Before joining the University of Utah, I spent four exciting years in the Mobile Networking Research Department at Bell Labs, Lucent Technologies. Earlier, I obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Advanced Networks Research Group at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. 


I am leading the Advanced Networked Systems Research (ANSR) Lab that I founded in 2003.

My research interests include networks and systems - technologies, protocols and applications encompassing mobile and pervasive systems and wireless networks, security, privacy, and reliability, Internet of Things, crowdsourcing, dynamic spectrum access, network resource management, network measurements and models, and social network applications.
