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.

Summer Research Project

I am looking for a student to participate in a summer research project during the summer term of 2017, funded by an NSERC USRA, The student should have completed COMP 445 by the time that the project begins.  Familiarity with Linux is essential, and familiarity with programming in C and C++ will be a definite asset.  For further information, see the following link:


Thesis Topics

I am looking for one or two new students for thesis projects. At this time, I will only accept transfer students (part way through the M.Ap.Comp.Sc. program), as I need students who are ready to work on their theses immediately.
