My main areas of interest are in communications, statistics, and applied probability. In communications I am interested in problems ranging from coding and information theory and channel modeling to networking issues such as teletraffic analysis and protocols for traffic management. Currently I am working on problems in all-optical network performance, modulation for non-uniform signaling, non-Gaussian modeling for self-similar packet traffic, development and analysis of quality of service management for internet traffic, and performance bounds for coded modulation systems.
In statistics I am interested in Bayesian methods and applications, orientation data analysis, and functional data. Currently I am working on problems in nonparametric Bayesian inference, design of calibration experiments for orientation data, and functional discriminant analysis.
In applied probability I am interested mainly in queueing models for communications networks and asymptotic analyses. Currently I am working on network models for customer retrials, large capacity network models for analysis of routing and connection-admission protocols, and algorithms for efficient computations on networks. I am also currently interested in bounds for the probability of finite unions of events.
