[February 1st, 2021] Office hours for the spring semester have been updated and can be found down below the fold.
Scheduled Office Hours
Tuesday: 2-3 PM
Wednesday: 2-4 PM
Friday: 12-1 PM
Help sessions for CSE 30341 and BACS application preparation are available on Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 7-9 PM. If you would like to join the help session, please let me know by 5 PM such that I make sure to have the virtual Zoom room ready to go / am monitoring for joins.
All office hours are virtual via the following Zoom link. As it is admit-based, please nudge me via e-mail if you are waiting too long. Note that only people with a valid ND NetID can join unless arranged in advance.
[January 20th, 2021] The ND BACS program is now accepting applications for the Class of 2024. Students must be a current ND freshmen. Full details can be found at the ND BACS website at https://bacs.nd.edu/
The application form can be found at https://forms.gle/X4iU1q52KJ26V4Fq8
[December 3, 2020] Our journalized version of the paper on leveraging passive WiFi characteristics for determining the available bandwidth was recently accepted to appear in the IEEE Internet of Things journal.
Very cool paper that leverages the spacing of plaintext block acknowledgements (ACKs) for the purpose of inferring the utilization on a given wireless link. In the paper, we show not only the feasibility of leveraging block ACKs for inferring bandwidth but we also demonstrate that such an approach would be viable during the normal WiFi scanning process (e.g. detecting block ACKs during a WiFi scanning sweep looking for nearby APs) is enough time to reasonably infer the available bandwidth.
[August 10, 2020] Office hours will be held virtually until mid-September unless specifically requested for in-person meetings. For in-person meetings, masks are required and the office area is limited to a maximum capacity of two. All in-person meetings will be held in 211B Cushing due to logistical issues associated with opening the CDT space in O’Shaughnessy.
[July 12, 2020] Fall 2020 office hours will be as follows:
Monday – 1-2 PM – 211 Cushing
Wednesday – 9-11 AM – CDT space in O’Shaughnessy
Friday – 8:15 – 11 AM – Dedicated appointment block in either Cushing / O’Shaughnessy (typically Cushing)
Friday mornings are a dedicated block for scheduled appointments with students (BACS, CSE) that are intentionally excluded from recurring meetings. Simply shoot myself or one of the admins a note (Tiffanie Sammons if you are coming from the CSE side or Claire Shelly if you are BACS or interested in the BACS) at least the day before by COB (Close of Business) and you as a student can schedule an appointment. Depending on where the appointments are best suited, I will hold them either in O’Shaughnessy or in Cushing.
The Monday and Wednesday times are open to walk-ins, no appointment needed.
[April 20th, 2020] Advanced Networks will soon be on the books for the fall semester. The overview for the course is listed below the break:

[April 20th, 2020] A nice surprise in my mail box at work with a fairly official document containing our patent awarded last year with regards to WiFi network speed characterization.
[March 30th, 2020] Two updates with regards to papers. Our short paper for EuroViz 2020 entitled “Characterizing Exploratory Behaviors on a Personal Visualization Interface Using Interaction Logs” was accepted to appear. Congrats to Poorna on her hard work in driving the paper through.
Our paper presented last week at WristSense 2020 entitled “Improved Sleep Detection Through the Fusion of Phone Agent and Wearable Data Streams” won Honorable Mention for the Apple Best Paper Award. Congrats to Stephen on the presentation and Gonzalo on their work for the paper.
[March 4th, 2020] Our Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science degree is now officially live with the website and press release.

[January 29th, 2020] A few interesting updates on what is going on with the work on PASS (Provider Accessible Storage Subsystem) which fits under the broader umbrella of our Redundancy Elimination at the Edge work that is funded by NSF. A bit more under the hood work but hopefully some fairly neat work down below the break.
