Vimal Kumar

Vimal Kumar

Assistant Professor

Education: Ph.D. Missouri University of Science & Technology
Research Interests:
My broad research areas include security in resource constrained environments such as wireless sensors, delay tolerant networks etc. and security in cloud computing. Specifically my work combines the need of energy efficiency, low latency and other QoS parameters with the challenges of security while aggregating data in resource constrained networks. I also work on the development and security of the sensor cloud computing model which integrates cloud computing and sensor networks to create pervasive networks. I am also working on applying machine learning algorithms to solve security issues such as trust in cloud computing.
