Research Interest

My research interest covers two areas. The first one is wireless networks, especially on the protocols for the initialization of a self-configured network (e.g., neighbor discovery). The second one is network security, especially on the identity authentication protocols in Internet. Besides, I am very good at modeling a network system by various mathematical methods such as stochastic process model, signal transformation model, etc., to anylize its performance.
