Research

I am doing research in two drastically different fields: (1) dependable distributed systems, and (2) smart and connected healthcare. My Ph.D. research was in the area of dependable systems and I have been working in the field for more than 16 years. Recently, I become more and more interested in doing applied research, especially in the area of smart and connected healthcare. More details can be found here.
