Synergistic Activities

  • In 2013,  introduced  CIS and  SAS accedmy at  Shaw University.
  • In 2013, initiated a collaborative research partnership with LAS at NC State University and National Security Agency.
  • Inventor of Split protocol concept: The split protocol concept was invented as part of my doctoral thesis and it has widespread use in networking and as well as in computing as described in this proposal. I believe this concept is as novel as pipelining and interleaving in computer architecture. This concept is also applicable to teaching, learning and computing models.
  • Sky Projection: I have invented a novel   outdoor advertising and promotion “marketing medium”, which projects high resolution color product images and messages into an open sky.  This advertisement technique can be used to display large information to be viewed by a large audience in metropolitan areas.
  • Team Leader in Pharmaceutical Industries: While I was working for a company in India, I have introduced a novel pharmaceutical molecule, which gained substantial market in Indian sub-continent.  Later, I have also established and managed a pharmaceutical company that collaborated with many multinational companies in Asia, Europe, and North America.

Teaching Experience: 2007-current

I have taught a variety of courses at Towson University and Loyola University Maryland. My teaching experience includes courses in Computer Science, Physics and Information Technology Management. In particular, I have taught courses, networking, operating systems, and senior level information management. In addition, I also served as a substitute teacher for operating systems and networks at undergraduate and graduate level. My teaching philosophy focuses on hands-on experiments and student-centric learning.
