Research Interests: My recent research activities focus on theoretical issues in wireless networking. In particular, I am interested in sensor networks and databases. My other research interests are in database systems and theory, wherein, I'm interested in materialized views, (multiple) query optimization, and data analysis. Since 2019, I am gaining interest in quantum computing and quantum networking.
