Abstract: Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are decentralised systems in which all nodes collaborate to forward data for each other. They were heavily studied in the 1990s and early 2000s, resulting in a plethora of network protocols and architectures. Interest in these networks has been renewed in recent years by applications such as Amazon Sidewalk, Drone Swarms, Self-driving cars etc. However, the creation of most of these protocols precedes the commercial adoption of the smartphone. Can the technological context of the time influence the design of network protocols? Join me in this talk where I’ll give an overview of the work I did during my PhD and re-evaluate the design of MANET routing protocols for emerging applications.

Bio: I am a finishing PhD student in the Systems Research Group at University of Cambridge, working under the supervision of Professor Jon Crowcroft. My research here focuses on enhancing the scalability and resiliency of wireless ad-hoc networks. Previously, I was a software engineer for about a decade, working for Oracle in the database scheduler and for Microsoft in the SQL Server Build team.
