Support for most of my research projects comes primarily from the National Science Foundation and from industrial partners; most recently Comcast, and in the past companies such as Sprint Labs, Nortel Networks, and Siemens (see individual project pages for details).

October 2014: I gave a talk entitled “Overcoming the Challenges of Network Technology Adoption” in the Department of Computer Science of Missouri University of Science & Technology.
July 2014: The paper entitled “Deconstructing MPTCP Performance” co-authored with B. Arzani, A. Gurney, S. Cheng, and B. T. Loo was accepted for presentation as a concise paper at the IEEE ICNP 2014 conference to be held in October 2014 in the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina.
June 2014: The paper entitled “Adoption of bundled services with network externalities and correlated affinities” co-authored with Jau C. de Oliveira and Steven Weber was accepted for publication in the ACM Transactions on Internet Technology (ToIT). An early version of the paper is available on arXiv.

June 2014: The paper entitled “Migrating to IPv6 – The role of basic coordination” co-authored with M. Nikkhah was presented (slides) at the Networking 2014 conference held June 2-4, 2014, in Trondheim Norway.
May 2014: The paper entitled “Impact of path characteristic and scheduling policies on MPTCP performance” co-authored with B. Arzani, A. Gurney, S. Cheng and B. T. Loo was presented at the PAMS 2014 Workshop held on May 16, 2014, in Victoria, BC/Canada.
February 2014: The paper entitled “Spin glasses with attitude: opinion formation in a partisan Erdös Rényi world” co-authored with M. H. Afrasiabi and S. S. Venkatesh was presented at the 2014 ITA Workshop held February 9-14, 2014, in San Diego, CA.
Our IPv6 Monitoring project has now been gathering data on IPv6 adoption for several years. It has also been tracking basic web performance when accessing web sites over either Ipv6 and Ipv4 to determine if and why differences may still be present. Most of the data is available on the project web site that also boasts a “query” page that allows you to customize the type of data you want to retrieve. (See the project's original introductory presentation -the audio unfortunately only starts about 7 mins into the presentation- given at the Summer 2010 ESCC/Internet2 Joint Techs conference). The project started as a joint project with Comcast and was subsequently supported by an NSF grant that enabled us to better explore the data we were gathering as well as improve the web interface that provides access to the data.
