At John Jay College I am teaching Object-oriented programming, Computer architecture, Forensic security and Advanced data structures. My current research projects include information flow inside a biological neuron, networking on demand (NoD) for network and applicaion design. NoD is similar to software defined radios (SDR) with the difference that the NoD devices or applications can adapt to security and privacy demands by changing networking characteristics. At this time, I am working on applying this concept on networks of human-implantable devices for healthcare.
