I am a tenure-track Senior Lecturer (U.S. equivalent: Associate Prof.) in the Systems and Networks Group at the Department of Computer Science at University College London. I received the PhD in 2008 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; my advisor was Hari Balakrishnan.

My research interests are in all aspects of computer networks, from the basic architecture of the wireless physical layer to high-level security properties. At UCL I lead the CHAOSNETS and SmartTap projects, both funded by the European Research Council (see news release).


I am seeking graduate students and postdoctoral research associates with an interest in working on challenging open problems in wireless networks to join the Systems and Networks Research Group at UCL. Because of the volume of mail I receive I regret that I'm not always able to reply, but I will see your application if you apply to the PhD programme.
