About me

I am a research associate at the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London. My research interests cover a broad spectrum of topics in computer networks. Specifically, they span network monitoring, resource allocation, Service Function Chaining (SFC), Network Function Virtualization (NFV), Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Mathematical Formulation of networking problems. Lately, my focus is on applying artificial intelligence on network monitoring. Google Scholar profile. I also acted as a joint investigator on multiple projects, both EU H2020 (Superfluidity) and UK EPSRC (EARL).
I am always looking for motivated students willing to collaborate with me.
