I’m a Professor at the University of Adelaide in the School of Mathematical Sciences, and a CI in the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS).
- Networks: in the past this was mostly computer networks, but these days it includes social networks, biological networks, …
- When you look at networks, there are quite a few pieces:
- Traffic (traffic analysis, traffic matrices, anomaly detection, …)
- Topology (estimation, and synthesis)
- Performance analysis (queueing theory and beyond)
- Routing (measurement and formal design)
- Security (formally provable properties of architectures)
- I’m interested in measurement/estimation, modelling and control of all of the above
- The tools we use come from graph theory, stochastic modelling,
statistics, abstract algebra, formal methods, signal processing,
…, i.e., whatever is needed but with an emphasis on rigour.
I obtained my PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Adelaide in 1994. I have since worked for the
- Co-operative Research Centre for Sensor Signal and Information Processing (CSSIP), in conjunction with DSTO
- at the Software Engineering Research Centre at RMIT and the University of Melbourne, in conjunction with Ericsson
- at the AT&T Shannon Research Labs in the United States.
For the last decade or so I have worked at the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Adelaide, in South Australia.
