He has held visiting appointments at AIRMICS, Atlanta, GA, and the AT&T Advanced Communications Laboratory, Whippany, NJ. He has published a number of papers in the areas of Parallel System Architecture, Multicomputer Networks, Routing Techniques, Parallelism Detection and Scheduling Techniques, Reliability of Real-Time Distributed Systems, Modeling of C-MOS Circuits, and Computer Arithmetic. His recent research interests include resource allocation and security in mesh networks, efficient query processing and security in sensor networks, and heterogeneous wireless networks. He has five approved patents and eighteen patent filings in the area of wireless cellular networks.

In 1994, as the Chair of the Technical Committee on Computer Architecture, IEEE Computer Society, he started a new symposium on High Performance Computer Architecture and has become most important meeting for the research community. Recently, he took an initiative in starting a new meeting in Mobile Ad hoc and Sensor Systems area, MASS-2004. The second, third and fourth meetings were held in Washington DC, Vancouver (Canada) and Pisa (Italy) respectively. His recent contribution in the form of a co-authored introductory text book on Wireless and Mobile Computing has been widely accepted throughout the world and a second edition has just been published. This book has been translated in to Korean language and has been reprinted both in China and India. His new co-authored book on Ad hoc and Sensor Networks was published in spring of 2006. He has also been named as an ISI Highly Cited Researcher in Computer Science.
