Graduate Students

I currently have five graduate students working under my supervision at the University of Calgary. They are:
  • Naimul Basher
    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 Boyden
    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 October 2006.
  • Jeffrey Erman
    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 Sessini
    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.

Undergraduate Students

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 email me.
