I am a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering at UCL. I gained a PhD in Mathematics and Statistics from the Univeristy of York in 2005. My current research interests centre around networks: mainly computer networks but anything where things are associated with other things can be viewed as a network. My Erdős number is three.
Along with Keith Briggs I run the Mathematics of Networks meetings. These (approximately) yearly meetings have been running since 2003.
My research interests include:
- Network topologies
- Statistical nature of traffic
- Distrubted and overlay networks
- Software defined networks
In general I'm interested in:
- Data analysis, machine learning
- Statistically rigorous analysis
- Graph theory
- Queu(e)ing theory
I have acted as a reviewer for a number of journals including:
- Journal for Selected Areas in Communications Systems
- Physica A
- Performance Evaluation
- Computer Communications
- IEEE Network
- Electronics Letters
- Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems
- Computer Networks
- Networks and Spatial Economics
- The Journal of Complex Networks>
- New Generation Computing
I am on various Technical Program Committees including:
- SIMPLEX -- Simplifying Complex networks.
- UKPEW -- the UK Performance Engineering workshop.
- AICT -- the IEEE Application of Information and Communication Technologies
- PMECT -- Performance Modeling and Evaluation of Computer and Telecommunication Networks
- SNS -- the Workshop on Social Network Systems
- EWSDN -- the European Workshop on Software Defined Networking
- NetSciCom -- the IEEE International Workshop on Network Science for Communication Networks
