I am interested in graph theoretical analysis and stochastic characterization of wireless ad hoc networks and highly dynamic networks. Some related sub-topics are introduced in the following.

Wireless Sensor Network (WSN)

A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a wireless communication network formed by sensors equipped with wireless communications devices.

WSNs have been used in many industrial and civilian applications, including industrial process monitoring and control, environment and habitat monitoring, traffic control, etc.

My research interests: modeling using graph theory, energy efficient routing, connectivity, hop counts, energy optimizing transmission range.


Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET)

A Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET) is a wireless communication network formed by vehicles travelling along the roadway.

VANETs aim toward providing information services such as traffic alerts, estimated time to reach a destination, alternative routes, and in general improve the efficiency and safety on the road. In addition, VANETs can also be used to deliver public safety warning messages in the case that infrastructures are destroyed by flooding or earthquake.

My research interests: information propagation speed, which is the expected speed for a piece of information to be broadcasted along the road.


Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET)

A Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET) is a wireless communication network formed by mobile wireless devices such as smart phones, electronic book readers or UAVs.

MANET can provide rapid connection between independent mobile users. Examples include establishing survivable, efficient, dynamic communication for emergency/rescue operations, disaster relief efforts, military networks, conference or campus networks, car networks, personal networks, etc.

My research interest: information propagation, epidemic routing, delay tolerant network.
