Dr Yehia Elkhatib


Research Overview

I work to enable distributed applications to traverse infrastructural boundaries. In the context of cloud computing, this entails looking into interoperability and migration challenges, as well as related decision support issues. I am the creator and chair of the international Cross-Cloud workshop series. Beyond the cloud, I work on border-free network architectures in intent-driven systems, systems of systems, and information centric networks. I also work on advocating network-awareness which involves measuring networked systems, evaluating network protocols, and proposing new network management strategies.
