Projects
NDN in mobile ad-hoc, delay-tolerant and
challenging networks.
Ongoing
Improving data retrieval rate, throughput and reducing latency us-
ing data-centric approach compared to traditional TCP/IP.
Publications: One accepted at IC3N 2021 and one published at
ICC Workshops 2020.
Tools: ndnSIM, C++
Network Coded Data Dissemination in
RSU-based Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks
(VANETs)
2014-2019
Minimize wireless broadcast data transmissions and overall
Vehicle-to-RSU communication latency to provide improved road-
safety and infotainment.
Achieved significant lower latency and wireless broadcast over-
head with high data-retrieval rate.
Publications: Two Journals and four Conference papers. Two as
first author, two as second and two as third (Google Scholar).
Tools: CSIM (C, C++)
Weighted Dropout: Supporting Multi-Level
