Biography

I received my B.Tech. degree in electronics and communication engineering from the National Institute of Technology, Calicut, India, in 1997 and the M.S. and Ph.D degrees in Computer Science and Engineering from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo, Amherst, in 2003 and 2005 respectively. I have worked at Telcordia Technologies, Nokia Research, and Bell Laboratories, investigating issues related to wireless networks. I am currently an Associate Professor teaching courses in the Cybersecurity major at the School of Information Technology at Illinois State University. I was previously an Associate Professor in the School of Computer Sciences at Western Illinois University. My research interests include security issues in Internet Of Things (IoT), wireless sensor and ad hoc networks, and performance analysis of network protocols.
