Currently, I am working on the EU Advanced Cyber Defence Centre (ACDC) project . The aim of the project is design reputation metrics for ISPs inorder to evaluate and incentivize them for botnet mitigation efforts. Further details can be found in paper Towards Incentivizing ISPs To Mitigate Botnets .
In my MS thesis, I worked on bandwidth allocation for video streams subject to an end-to-end perentile delay. I used the RFCs on traffic dumps to extrapolate video traffic and create simulated queue based network. Statistics modeling techniques were then applied to model video traffic which can be used for end to end bandwidth estimation and synthetic load generation to test networks.
Prior to that, I contributed in IEPM (Internet End to End Performance Monitoring) projects that include TULIP and Trace route analysis research projects as a research fellow at Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC), Stanford University, USA. My main contributions included researching on algorithms for localization problem and analyzing/presenting data for traceroutes.
