Research Overview

I am interested in the design, use and performance of computer communication systems, architectures, protocols and applications, including performance analysis. I have a preference for practical work, using test-beds - I like to build and break things! At the moment, ILNP is an exciting area of work for me. I am interested in the Internet architecture and how it effects the interaction between the network, the application and the user. As the nature of applications has become more distributed, so the aspects of networking that allow applications to communicate and distribute information have become increasingly significant. Traditional networked applications have assumed that the network resources they need are always available. As the demand for network resources from applications increases, and the nature of the networks themselves changes (e.g. fixed networks vs. mobile networks), the applications must become (a) generally aware of their own connectivity and (b) sensitive to the demand for the limited resources in the network. This is especially true for mobile and wireless applications and for applications operating at very high levels of performance. In both cases, users and system operation could be stressing the infrastructure, especially with data-streams, such as real-time applications and media flows, that are sensitive to resource limitations within the network.
