I am a Senior Researcher with the Network Research Group, where I am mainly working on Frameworks for Large Scale Worldwide Experimental Studies, and contributing to NICTA's OMF and OML frameworks. I am also interested in using these frameworks to improve the teaching of networking courses, using the IREEL eLearning Platform. Finally, I have recently started new activities related to experimental measurements and analysis.
Before joining NICTA, I completed a PhD student in a cotutelle agreement between UNSW (Sydney, Australia) and DMI Lab at ENSICA (Toulouse, France). I defended my PhD thesis on Jan.07 and graduated on May 07. My PhD Dissertation, "Distributed Discovery and Management of Alternate Internet Paths with Enhanced Quality of Service", is available here.
Prior to that I was a Senior Research Engineer at the Motorola Australian Research Centre (MARC, now closed), where I worked with the Wireless Technology Lab (WTL) on Quality-of-Service oriented MAC protocols for Wireless LAN (WLAN).
