We try to answer the following question: “Is it possible to detect abnormal behavior in a P4 switch and take corrective measures?”
We try to answer the following question: “Is it possible to detect control-data plane inconsistency in P4 networks?”
I am interested in topics surrounding monitoring and verification in Software-defined networks (SDNs) and Programming Protocol-independent Packet Processors (P4) networks. I am involved in building systems which ensure rigorous monitoring and verification of SDNs and P4 networks.
I was involved in FP7 Integrated European Union Project UNIFY where I contributed to troubleshooting, monitoring and verification of Service Chains in Carrier-Grade Networks. Currently, I am a project leader of project “Verify: Towards Rigorous Verification and Monitoring of Software-defined Networks (SDNs)”. Project Verify is funded by BMBF grant under Software Campus executives development program.
Joined Huawei German Research Center in Munich as Senior Networks Researcher in Cloud! I am excited and looking forward to applying AI/ML techniques to verify/troubleshoot Cloud Datacenters.
Paper accepted at IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications – Special Issue on Network Softwarization & Enablers! I am delighted to announce that P4CONSIST: Towards Consistent P4 SDNs got accepted to TNSM journal. This research was conducted under my project Verify.
Delivered a talk! in KuVS Fachgespräche: Machine Learning & Networking at TU Munich! This research was conducted under my project Verify.
Defended my Ph.D.! Thanks to my mentors and family.

Paper accepted at IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (TNSM)! I am delighted to announce that Towards Consistent SDNs: A Case for Network State Fuzzing got accepted to TNSM journal. This research was conducted under my project Verify.
Presentation at TPRC47: Research Conference on Communications, Information and Internet Policy! I presented our paper Navigating the Landscape of Programmable Networks: Looking beyond the Regulatory Status Quo. This research was conducted under my project Verify in collaboration with Network Policy expert Dr. Volker Stocker, Weizenbaum Institute.
