For the past seven years I have been working on key research challenges
in the area of network and service management. This area refers to the
activities that pertain to the operation, administration, and provisioning
of networked systems. My main topics of interest are: policy-based
management, autonomic networking, network monitoring, and quality of
service for fixed networks.
My PhD was supervised by Prof. George Pavlou, and focused on techniques
and methodologies for the analysis of quality of service management policies
applying to IP DiffServ networks. This work was under the umbrella of EPSRC
PAQMAN, a collaborative project between CCSR (Surrey University) and DSE
(Imperial College London).
Over the years I have been involved in a number of research projects:
EMANICS - Management of Internet Technologies and Complex Services
AutoI - Autonomic Internet
ENTHRONE - End-to-End QoS through Integrated Management
of Content, Networks and Terminals
ESII - Enabling Secure Information Infrastructures
PAQMAN - Policy Analysis for Quality of Service Management
Every year I teach part of the MSc Nework and Services Management (NSM)
module. I also demonstrate/supervise MSc lab sessions on network
management protocols and technologies (SNMP/CORBA), and BEng object
oriented programming exercises (Java).
