As part of a broader organisational restructure, data networking research at Swinburne University of Technology has moved from the Centre for Advanced Internet Architecture (CAIA) to the Internet For Things (I4T) Research Lab.

Although CAIA no longer exists, this website reflects CAIA's activities and outputs between March 2002 and February 2017, and is being maintained as a service to the broader data networking research community.

My Current Research Activity:

Multimedia communication over Next Generation Mobile Networks (NGMN) is my current research interest. As my PHD thesis I am working on providing seamless multimedia over WiMAX and LTE technologies. These technologies are the main technologies for the Forth Generation of wireless networks (4G). At the moment I am focused on the handover management and efficient usage of interfaces in multi-interface user equipment (UE). OPNET is being used as the simulation tool for this research project (more information...).
