Research Interests

Some of my research interests include the following:

  • Network performance prediction
  • Network security and intrusion detection
  • Network simulation with OMNeT++
  • Software-defined Networking (SDN)
  • Statistics evaluation and ML in R and Python

Open theses can be found here. Note that a lot of these topics can be tailored to either bachelor theses, master theses or student projects.
