In Spring, 2017, I am teaching
two graduate-level special topic courses, one on Software-Defined Networking,
and the other on Internet of Things: Applications and Implementation.
Registered students will be able to access more information specific to the Spring 2017
administration accessible from
the respective WolfWare Classic lockers (linked above).
Each of these courses is cross-listed with both CSC and ECE course codes, and also cross-listed as a 500-level as well as a 700-level course; consequently each section has four sub-sections. If you have been attending classes for one of the above courses but have not been able to register in the sub-section of your choice, get in touch with me, and it should be possible to register you in the correct sub-section, as long as there is room in the combined section.
I am a faculty member in the
Department of Computer Science in the
College of Engineering, and the
Masters in Computer Networking Program; at
North Carolina State University,

After completing elementary schooling in Kolkata, he received a B.E. in Electrical Engineering from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India, in 1991, a M.E. in Systems Science and Automation from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India in 1993, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from North Carolina State University, Raleigh, USA, in 2001. From 1993 to 1997 he worked for IBM as a software developer and programmer in various networking related projects. He has been employed from 2001 - 2007 as Assistant Professor, from 2007 - 2013 as Associate Professor, and since 2013 as Professor, in the department of Computer Science at the North Carolina State University, Raleigh. During the summer of 2005, he was a visiting researcher at the IBM WebSphere Technology Institute in RTP, NC, USA. His current research interests focus on design and performance optimization of large networking systems, Internet architecture, wireless networks, and network analytics. He is a senior member of IEEE and a distinguished member (distinguished engineer) of ACM.
His research is supported currently by grants from the National Science Foundation, the National Security Agency, and industry, including a recent CC-NIE grant and a JUNO grant from NSF. He has served as a reviewer for many premium journals, on NSF, DoE, ARO, and NSERC (Canada) review panels, as part of the organizing committee of many premium conferences, most recently as Technical Program Chair for the IEEE Sarnoff Symposium in 2016, and Technical Program Chair for IEEE NFV-SDN 2017. He serves on the editorial boards of the Elsevier Journal of Optical Switching and Networking, and the Springer Photonic Communication Networks journal.
He is married, has two children and lives in Cary, North Carolina with his family. His sister and her family live in Kolkata, India.
