    Research Interests

    My current research primarily focuses on unraveling the dynamics of various large-scale networked systems (such as societal and wired/wireless communication networks) by adopting various analytical tools ranging from modern queueing theory and control theory to optimization and algorithmic approximations. My current research topics are briefly highlighted below.
     Spreading Processes over Layered Networks:

    Ranging from malware propagation on the digital landscape to "word-of-mouth" influence in social networking platforms, modeling stochastic epidemic models and their determinsitic approximations at micro and marcoscopic levels have been the subject of serious scientific inquiry in recent years. Some research directions include:
    • Epidemic thresholds for amended models over various networks classes.
    • Phase transitions in inter-switching memes over multiplex networks.
    • Resource-constrained recovery policies for heterogeneous infection rates.
     Spectrum Occupancy in Multi-channel Cognitive Radio:

    Proliferation of wireless services in recent years has stimulated the need for improved spectrum management policies to exploit the abundant spectrum holes in existing licensed bands. Cognitive radio (CR) has emerged as a potential technology allowing unlicensed or secondary users (SUs) to temporarily access idle licensed bands exclusive to primary users (PUs). The degree of flexibility in spectrum sharing between PUs and SUs is profoundly influenced by:
    • Orderly re-attempts of SUs in multi-channel CR networks.
    • Dynamic spectrum access under SU service differentiation.
     Energy Management and Scheduling in Smart Grids:

    Fluctuations in electricity tariffs induced by the sporadic nature of demand loads on power grids has initiated immense efforts to find optimal scheduling solutions for charging/discharging plug-in electric vehicles. Comprehending the demand-service energy flow in smart grids would help predict better load profiles and manage energy more efficiently. We therefore, are interested in:
    • Reliability analysis of central grid controller with service priorities.
    • Profit maximization in spatially distributed V2G scheduling.
