Associate Professor

Teletraffic Research Centre

Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


Hi, I am an associate professor and the leader of the Defence, Cyber and Space theme, the faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences (ECMS), the University of Adelaide.

I'm leading a research group on Cyber-AI with focus on network fragility and security at the Teletraffic Research Centre, the University of Adelaide, Australia.

Prospective students (2021-4-16): We are offering generous research scholarships (PhDs and Masters) and summer research scholarships (undergraduates) on applying Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning and Game Theory to solve problems in network (anti)fragility and security.

Applicants must be Australian citizens or permanent residents of Australia who are acceptable as candidates for a PhD/Master by Research degree at the University of Adelaide.

Please contact me directly with your CV if interested.

Short Bio: I have a PhD in Computer Science and Telecommunications from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne, Switzerland (EPFL). Prior to that, I received the B.Eng. degree in Information Technology and Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Adelaide, Australia and completed the Pre-Doctoral school in communication systems at EPFL.

I am interested in formal models and tools for computer networks.  My research spans all areas of communication and information networking, including: Provable Network Security; Software-Defined Networking; Cellular and Ad Hoc Networks; Network Design, Configuration and Routing; and  Network Measurement and Tomography.

My paper on network auto-configuration in 2010 started the Autonetkit software (ANK). ANK is currently being used as the auto-configuration tool for the Cisco VIRL simulation and emulation environment. See for example here

The Internet Topology Zoo that I helped build  is widely used in all areas of networking research and development worldwide and has been cited  more than 300 times (and counting) in the last 3 years.

My tomography papers have been nominated for awards at major networking conferences. 

Find out more about my research at my research blog and my publications at my Google scholar page.
