• Data Management and Content Sharing in Delay Tolerant Networks
• WiFi-based Content Distribution Community Infrastructure [ICDCS’09]
Designed a WiFi-based content distribution community infrastructure for vehicular
networks with erasure-coded cache at wireless access points (APs). Formalized the
cache management problem at APs to maximize ﬁle retrieval probability, based on
content popularity and AP visit patterns.
• Delay Tolerant Content Sharing among Vehicles
Designed a P2P ﬁle sharing system for vehicular networks with query-aware caching
at vehicles. Formalized the ﬁle copy management problem at vehicles to maximize
users’ download utility, based on content popularity.
• Development: Java, Matlab, Python (7,000 lines); Windows, Android
• Relay Placement for Reliable Base Station Connectivity
• Developed various constrained relay placement algorithms to maintain reliable con-
nectivity to base stations for polymorphous networks with multiple topologies [SECON’10].
• Constructing a testbed of Android phones and WiFi gateways for real-time monitor-
ing applications, streaming multimedia and sensor reading in particular.
• Development: Matlab, C++ (4,000 lines); ns-2
• Broadcast Authentication with Integrated QoS and QoP
• Developed an authentication protocol for probabilistic broadcast with collaborative
key delivery, which trades oﬀ security against compromise for shortened authentica-
tion delay [MASS’09].
• Developed a Denial-of-Service resilient broadcast authentication protocol with prob-
abilistic authentication and context-aware adaptation to balance the capability to
contain false injection and end-to-end delay [MCN’08].
• Development: Java, C++, Perl (3,000 lines); ns-2, Linux
• Mobility Model for First Responders in Incident Scene
• Developed a mobility model to capture organized, collaborative and responsive behav-
ior for ﬁrst responders in incident scenes. Implemented the mobility trace generation
tool “CORPS”, which simulates movement of ﬁrst responders with diﬀerent roles,
considering attention and caution events, and their interaction with other people.
• Development: C++, Tcl, shell script (3,500 lines); ns-2
Other Broadband Network Research Lab, Motorola, Marlborough, MA USA
Research Research Intern 05/07–08/07
• Developed a comprehensive mobility model for ﬁrst responders in incident scene.
• Filed a patent for our joint work on “Method and Apparatus for Alerting nodes of a
Malicious Node in a Mobile Ad-Hoc Communication System”.
Research Intern 05/06–08/06
• Implemented various attack behaviors on the Dynamic Source Routing module in
OPNET, and studied the impact of attacks on routing protocol performance.
Graduate Research Assistant, NCSA, UIUC 01/05-08/05
SACRED (RFC 3760) Project, advised by Dr. Jim Basney
• SACRED (Securely Available Credentials) is an IETF framework and protocol to
allow secure, authenticated, and portable access to security credentials. I imple-
mented a client-side applet, integrated with Mozilla Firefox via smart card interface.
I also ported SACRED java client in C and tested cross-language and cross-platform
compatibility and robustness.
• Development: C, Java (6,000 lines)
Teaching Teaching Assistant, CS 425: Distributed Systems Fall 2009

• Designed two course projects, Peer-to-Peer chatting and ﬁle sharing applications over
WiFi for Android phones with sample code.
Teaching Assistant, CS 101: Introduction to Computing Fall 2004
• Graded homework, machine problems and exams.
• Wrote hand-in shell scripts for automatic checking and grading of course projects.
