Chainstapling for Network Functions
With the main goal in adoption of Blockchain focused around open distributed nature of the technology, rapid extension of use cases introduced vulnerabilities of programming into the blockchain. This project aims to study usage of smart contracts with focus on vulnerabilities, offline capacity, and assessment of chainstapling, especially for inegration of network functions.
IoT Networks and User Experience of Security
With massive increase in the number of IoT devices we use at home and enterprise networks, and industrial settings for measurement and control, we need novel methods for data management, privacy, and security. Classifying observations, finding patterns, and sourcing problems from the users’ perspective is the aim of this project.
Empowerment Through Tech Education
Access to learning and development of new technology is important in building sustainable societies. I am educating myself on the matter, and trying to improve the situation with practical steps. I believe this could be an important step towards wealth redistribution and building fairness.
Network Data Analytics & Diagnostics
Network analytics PoC, used for data collection and analysis from live networks was one of the interesting projects I worked on. The amount of detailed data available in the networks is massive. It is very interesting, in the mean time very hard to make sense of the available data, detect causes of failures, and predict failures in advance.
Resource Utilization in Wireless Networks
Increased capabilities of handheld and mobile devices using online services is increasing the mobile data usage. The rate of this increase is incomparably higher than that accommodated by network capacity upgrades. Therefore, despite the higher availability of networks and faster upgrades, effective utilization of available resources is essential to keep up with the increasing mobile data demands. I have worked on a number of projects in wireless access and mobile networks to enhance usage of available capacity.
I designed a network for monetization of excess WiFi capacity and proved feasibility with 1.7% of resources in target areas, developed a simple MVP, and led user behaviour analysis, and go to market strategy. I failed to build WiFier as a company and left it very early-stage despite investment interests, first place in SEY JumpStart, and finalist in SFU SEY startup competitions for a personal reason.
I started Novel Design by web and graphic design for friends and family as a hobby in 2004. It grew to leading outsourced design and delivery of marketing and online presence projects for 20+ clients from different sectors, including manufacturing, construction, and health care. I left Novel Design to move to Canada to start my PhD.
