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

Hi, I am a level C academic (senior lecturer) at the Teletraffic Research Centre, the University of Adelaide, Australia. I'm leading the Space and Defence theme development within the faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences (ECMS).

Prospective students (2018-12-12): We are offering research scholarships (PhDs and Masters) and summer research scholarships (undergraduates) on provable network security. Please contact me directly 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.
