I've made a large number of presentations in various conferences, in the IETF, etc. -- too numerous to list.

Earlier papers

Earlier, I have also done a number of papers, mostly during the pre-graduate times. I'll link only to one because it's already "out there". Last modified on 27.02.2014 12:24
