Research Interests:
I have done research in several areas: In particular, I have been working on Coding Theory, Data Security, Parallel and Distributed Computation, and applications of Information--Theoretical methods to problems of Extremal Combinatorics and Theoretical Computer Science. I am now especially interested in efficient algorithms for information dissemination in interconnection networks and Combinatorial Search Theory
