Research

Research interests

My work concerns mainly distributed computing, networking and communication protocols. I am interested in modelling, describing and implementing secure communication protocols and multimedia applications by taking into account the architecture of heterogeneous networks. Our fundamental tools are graphs, distributed algorithmic, transition systems, models for performance evaluation and simulators. So, my research activities combine between engineering and theoretical aspects.

Current research focuses:

  • Radio resource and Mobility management
  • Medium access control
  • Wireless network security, trust management and privacy preservations
  • Network performance
  • Vehicular Ad hoc and sensor networks
  • Internet of Things
  • Mobile social networks
  • Wireless body area networks
