His current research includes developing system-level support for edge
computing and digital twins at the edge, building socio-technical systems
to empower environmental justice communities, strengthening democracy
through technology, and investigating cybersafety
issues in social networks. In the past, he has conducted extensive research
in the areas of mobile group recommendations, cyberbullying in social
networks, misbehavior detection in online video chat systems, multiplayer
online game analytics, secure and intrusion-tolerant sensor networks,
delay-tolerant networking, and group communication systems.
He teaches systems
courses both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. These include
Computer Systems and Operating Systems at the undergraduate level and
Distributed Systems, Computer Networks and Advanced Operating Systems at
