My Research

My work involves the application of service oriented architectures to the delivery of IP communications services in enterprise networks.  In addition, I investigate distributed architectures for IP communications service platforms.


Projects

I am investigating techniques to perform feature interaction detection in architectures using SIP application servers.  I am also participating in a project to demonstrate location-based services for enterprise applications.  I co-chair the Scalable Adaptative Multicast RG in the IRTF (www.samrg.org).


Publications

My recent research publications have been in the areas of improving the performance of peer-to-peer overlays, hybrid overlay multicast and service discovery.
