Research interests

Convergence between cloud computing and Internet of Things (IoT): The collaboration of Cloud and IoT technologies will hopefully increase our quality of life globally through digital sophistication and are widely applicable to a range of industries, for example, health-care systems, atmosphere monitoring, agriculture, home/office automation, transportation, infrastructure, industry, social networks, entertainment, security systems etc.

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) and ad hoc networks: Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) and ad hoc networks utilize fast, cheap, and effective applications to imitate the human intelligence capability on a wider distributed scale. Our work on these networks includes looking at the external environment, routing, data aggregation and ensuring quality of service (QoS) and security. Solutions have been developed for various types of application scenarios but many problems still remain as open research challenges.
