Home Research Teaching Publications Getting Involved


I am a Professor in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at Lehigh University, where I head up the WiNS Laboratory. My research interests include building robust mobile data systems, assistive technologies, and future internet systems. I teach courses in operating systems, networking and network security, and also serve as the instructor for both the Computer Science and Computer Engineering senior design courses. My research is funded by the National Science Foundation, DARPA, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.

  • About Me...

    I received my bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Malaya. Then, I spent 2.5 years at R& D Department at Motorola Penang Sdn. Bhd before starting my PhD study at UCSD under Prof Rene L. Cruz. My PhD research focused on modeling and analysis of dynamic routing schemes via a fluid-based non-traditional approach. After my PhD, I joined Bell Labs in 1991 and stayed there for 12 years where I was involved in designing future wireless internet systems. I joined Lehigh in Jan 2004. Based on my work at Bell Labs, I was awarded 62 US patents and 15 international patents. More information can be found here

    For fun, I like volunteering at a ministry involving special need children, listening to piano music and counseling students.
