[May 12th, 2022] Our paper entitled “Swipe Along: A Measurement Study of Short Video Services” was accepted into MMSys 2022 that will be held in Ireland in June 2022. The paper focuses on the performance of various short video services and in particular how those services pre-load content to help improve interactivity. Great work by my student Shangyue and many thanks to our collaborators at AT&T Labs.

[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.
[January 13th, 2020] The publication pages should be receiving some much deserved attention over the next few weeks. While I had intended to do some nice categorization, in the interest of timeliness, I am switching over to a much simpler list-based format. Perhaps if I can find some time and do some cleverness with a consolidated BibTeX file, there might some updates in the summer but for now, everything should finally get posted in the next week or two.
[January 10th, 2019] A bit of a belated congratulations to Zhongying Qiao who successfully completed her Masters work and will be heading out to work in Silicon Valley this spring.
[June 1st, 2018] Many thanks to all of the esteemed faculty here in ND CSE and my former (Kevin Bowyer) and current chair (Pat Flynn) for allowing me to serve as Associate Chair for the past six years. My best wishes to Doug Thain who will be succeeding me as Associate Chair for the department.
My apologies to those whose e-mail got a bit delayed. I will be back to the US with a slated return for July 1st and things getting back in full gear on the 5th. Feel free to drop me a note at the office starting on the 5th and expect my response time to speed up significantly.
A huge thanks to the Dublin Summer Program staff which are simply amazing. Teaching over here in Ireland has been grand and it has been a phenomenal experience. Bit hectic with accreditation and spinning up a large grant but the scenery, people, and the craic are simply amazing. Over far too soon but look for some fantastic picture once I have a chance to download everything across the various cameras I have been taking pictures with.
