I am a Lead Member of Technical Staff in the "Optimization, Reliability and Customer Analytics" Department of  AT&T Labs research.
I became an IEEE Fellow in 2009 for "contributions to design and analysis of telecommunications networks and routing protocols" and became an AT&T Fellow in 2009 for "outstanding contributions to performance analysis and robust design and their application to improving the performance, reliability and scalability of AT&T’s networks".  I am also a past recipient of Marcel Neuts award (1997), got honorable mention in Frederick Lanchester Prize (1997) and was a finalist in Eta Kappa Nu's outstanding Young Electrical Engineering Competition (1989).
I have a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, have about 100 externally published papers (Journal + Conference) and have about 25 US Patents.
My key expertise are in the optimization, modeling and design of Software Defined Networks and Cellular/IP/Optical Networks
My specialties include:
1. LTE Air Interface modeling/design/optimization
2. Software Defined Networks (SDN) Controller modeling/optimization
3. IP Network Design/optimization
4. MPLS Traffic Engineering and Fast Reroute.
5. IP Multicast Protocols
6. Convergence Time, Scalability and Stability of Control Protocols
7. Voice Call Quality and Adaptive De-jitter Buffer Modeling.
8. Voice and Data Over IP Over Cable (DOCSIS).
9. Steady state and Transient modeling of Networks
10. Algorithms for Multidimensional Transform Inversion.
11. Queueing Theory (Transient Analysis, Polling, Matrix Analytic Techniques).
