Topics of interest

In general, I am interested in network and services management. In my PhD research project, I am working with Network Function Virtualization Management and Orchestration (NFV-MANO) and Autonomic Network Management.

Current research project

Towards an autonomic network management for network service chaining based on self-performance capabilities.
