Research Interests                         home 

I am interested in doing research in distributed replicated databases, including concurrency control, distributed deadlock detection and avoidance, and wireless communication issues including reliable multicast and mobile, ad-hoc networks.  I have recently begun research in wireless networks and distributed storage structures. 

Research is done with CSIM18, Matlab and QualNet  QualNet Network Simulator University ProgramQualNet Network Simulator
