I am a Professor and the Chair of the Computer Science Department at NJIT. I also hold a Visiting Professor appointment at the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo, Japan. I received my Ph.D. degree from Rutgers University, and the M.S./B.S. degrees from University Politehnica, Bucharest, Romania. My research interests include: mobile computing & sensing; ad hoc & vehicular networks; and cloud & distributed systems. More specifically, I focus on designing, implementing, and evaluating system architectures, network protocols, middleware, programming models, and security mechanisms for networked systems. I always look forward to working with highly motivated students on current or new research projects.
