Hi! I'm Deepak Nadig
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Technology at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN. My research focus is primarily on the interplay between Software Defined Networks and Network Functions Virtualization for developing secure and intelligent next-generation networks. My research interests are in Computer Networks, Software Defined Networks, Network Functions Virtualization, Cloud-native Infrastructure, Network Security and AI/ML applications to networking.
My research philosophy is grounded in the fact that application-centric networks resulting from seamless collaboration between application-layer and network-layer have a marked impact on network management, security, policy frameworks, network services and big data analytics. Importantly, I focus on cross-layer approaches to optimize and secure networks rather than layer-3 approaches that are unaware of the applications’ service and resource requirements. Thus, my research seeks to uncover application-aware networking and its impact on security, service differentiation and efficient data transfers in distributed data-intensive applications.
