My research is concerned with the specification, validation, and evaluation of communications protocols, and with the application of these protocols within computer networks.  I am Director of the High Speed Protocols Laboratory.

My current research focus is on Secure Routing, Secure Multicasting, Autonomic Networking, and Software-Defined Networks (SDN).

Thesis Topics

Note to Prospective PhD students:  I retired from Concordia University in 2006.  While I do have a research program, it is accomplished entirely with short-term commitments.  I no longer accept PhD students.

I am willing to consider accepting one or two new students for Master's thesis projects, in topics closely related to my current research focus.
