Research Statement

My current research interests concern:

o Formulation of security and trust in communication and computer networks within control- and game-theoretic frameworks, addressing issues like intrusion detection and response, malware filtering, trust propagation and evolution, and resource allocation.

o Remote control over networks under rate constraints, where the underlying issues are quantization and handling of packet losses and the presence noise in forward and reverse channels.

o Optimal control and sensing over networks when the number of transmissions is restricted a priori.

o Pricing, optimum resource allocation, and mechanism design in networks with multiple user and service classes.

o Consensus in computation under bit constraints on exchange of information among different computing stations, and with asynchronous communication.

o Control of packets in networks for improved performance and particularly with regard to TCP and router algorithms.

o Multi-level multi-resolution games with a high population of agents operating in adversarial environments.

o Application of game-theoretic tools to resilience of cyber-physical systems, and the smart grid.
