Chief Scientist. Information & Computer Science Research Laboratory, Telcordia Technologies. My current areas of interest are in e-Commerce and Next Generation Network (NGN) applications and services. Currently involved with coordinating external funding activities via government contracts and patent licensing. I have made technical and managerial contributions to various R&D projects, including:

  • Capacity routing approaches for WDM optical networks

  • Security and survivability methods for optical networks

  • Electronic payment mechanisms

  • Design and implementation of online database and websites

Executive Director. Information Technologies Research Department, Telcordia Technologies (formerly Bellcore). Managed a department within the Applied Research Area consisting of four diverse, interdisciplinary research groups and about forty researchers and advanced developers with backgrounds in the Computing and Mathematical Sciences (about 75% Ph.D. and 25% MS). The groups covered the following areas:

  • Network design and optimization;

  • Traffic analysis and engineering;

  • Security and cryptography;

  • Billing and customer care;

  • Service management and database systems.

Coordinated interactions with and obtaining R&D funding from numerous internal customers, RBOC customers, Fortune 500 corporations, international research labs, government funding agencies and universities. Research and prototyping projects have included

  • Network Design Toolkits for SONET/WDM, ATM, Frame Relay & Fiber Access networks

  • Broadband Traffic Analysis, Modeling and Tools for "Fractal Packet Traffic"

  • Technologies for fast, secure cryptosystems for encryption, authentication, hashing and signature

  • Real-time, interactive electronic billing and payment mechanisms

  • Client-Server systems for Services Management System/800, Local Number Portability
