I currently have five graduate students working under my
supervision at the University of Calgary. They are:
Naimul joined our M.Sc. program in September 2005. He has
a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from
Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET). He is
currently taking course and actively hunting for a thesis topic.
Sean joined our
M.Sc. program in September 2004. He obtained the B.Sc.
degree in Computer Science from the University of Northern British
Columbia in May 2004. Sean's general research interests are in
computer networks. Currently, Sean is taking courses and working on
a project to characterize the TCP-friendliness of commercial
media streaming applications. Sean is co-supervised with
Professor Carey Williamson. Sean will be defending his thesis in
Jeffrey joined our M.Sc. program in September 2005. He has a B.Sc. degree in
Computer Science from the University of Regina.
Jeffrey is working on developing Internet Traffic Classification
techniques. Some of his early work appeared in ACM SIGCOMM's
MINENET workshop and IEEE GLOBECOM.
- Nadim Parvez
Nadim joined the Ph.D. program in January 2005. He has an
M.Sc. degree in ECE from the University of Manitoba, and a B.Sc. degree
in Computer Science and Engineering from BUET. Nadim's
research interests include analytic modeling of TCP and
tuning TCP performance in wired/wireless networks.
Nadim is co-supervised with Professor Carey Williamson.
Phillipa has a B.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of
Calgary. Prior to joining our graduate program, Phillipa worked
with me as a research assistant (January 2005 - August 2006).
During the course of her undergraduate study, she held two
NSERC University Student Research Awards.
Her research interests include quality adaptation
for streaming media, peer-to-peer systems, sensor networks,
and interdomain routing. She has published in SCS SPECTS,
ACM/SPIE Multimedia Computing and Networking, and the
prestigious ACM Multimedia conference. Phillipa is
co-supervised with Dr. Zongpeng Li.
NOTE: The following applies only to undergraduate
students at the University of Calgary
I am also interested in supervising undergraduate students, so if you
are interested in working on some interesting networking
problems, feel free to drop me a line. Opportunities
available to undergraduate students include applying for
the NSERC Undergraduate Summer Research Award (USRA),
undertaking CPSC 502/503, or working as a research assistant.
A brief description of projects suitable for undergraduate
students can be found
here. If you are interested in research and the joys
of publications (i.e., paper writing, participation at conferences, etc),
and my research interests appeal to you, please do not hesistate to
