Research interests: My research focuses on modeling, performance evaluation, and design issues in online learning, queueing systems and communication networks, drawing on tools from stochastic modelling, queueing theory, game theory, optimization, and control theory. My recent interests include network economics and uncertainty management in smart grids.
