Description of Research: 

Network discovery and communication on Wi-Fi compatible devices requires broadcasting device identifiers, allowing devices to become traceable solely with their presence. Because Wi-Fi is ubiquitous, my research focuses on developing protocols and systems that improve user privacy and security in wireless networking environments. I am also interested in network performance, protocol analysis, and mobile systems.
