|The level might be varying
from one to the other, but any given person after a PhD has some
curiosity for research. I'll try to give you an idea as to what turns
me on in that respect. Looking at the kinds of projects I have been
involved in and the places I have been working at, I could say that I
love to work on ideas that can come to life in foreseeable future (read
future here as 1-10yrs rather
than some 20+yrs). This preference reflects onto my everyday TODO list
in terms of more hands-on stuff, not particularly liked by some
More into specifics, I have substantial interest
for the broad field of computer networking, and mobile/wireless part of
it in particular. In my earlier life, I worked on a cross-layer
architecture for service access in wireless ad hoc networks. More
recently I have been doing research on various issues in dense wireless
LANs, vehicular communications, location enhancements to future
Internet protocols, multi-radio coexistence, and available bandwidth
estimation for wireless. These diverse roads somehow kept intersecting
at the ORBIT wireless testbed junction, for the reason of real-world evaluations.
my everyday life, I like to listen to new ideas from others on various
things (including above topics, but not limited to) and challenge
them to provoke intellectual discussions.
If you made it this far reading about my research interests, you might also be interested in my publications and the projects I have been involved in.
