For Potential Students

Students who are interested in doing projects/theses on computer networks, wireless connectivity and mobile computing are requested to send their CV and transcript to me over email. In general, depending on their time commitment, students contribute to one or more research papers. The students are expected to have familiarity and strong interest in systems work, including actual implementation of testbeds. Thorough grounding in machine learning, algorithms and optimization techniques is considered to be a plus. During the course of these projects, discussions on tangential items related to working of networks and/or systems within the group are encouraged.
