Research interests

Most of my research centers on networked systems: network virtualization, network management, Software-Defined Networks (SDN), network architectures and wireless networks. I also enjoy working on interdisciplinary problems.

I am currently a Principal Investigator on 3 research awards from the National Science Foundation (NSF), and one award from the National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG). In the past, I have also received an NSF subaward from the University of Missouri, on an EPSCoR project, and a SLU intramural President's Research Fund Award. I have also received a COMCAST Innovation Fund Award in Jan 2020.
