Ajay Gopinathan


Research

My research interests primarily lie within the area of computer communication networks, with a focus on theoretical and algorithmic aspects of computer communication. I am particularly interested in network optimization problems, approximation algorithms and the application of game theory and mechanism design to study the impact of self-interested agents on the performance of communication networks.
