Salil Kanhere


Salil obtained a B.E. in Electrical Engineering from VJTI, Bombay, India in 1998. Subsequently he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Drexel University in Philadelphia, USA as a post-graduate student. Salil received his M.S. and Ph.D., both in Electrical Engineering in 2001 and 2003 respectively. Salil's Ph.D. dissertation was in the area of fair, efficient, and low-latency scheduling in high-speed networks with a particular focus on achieving low implementation complexity for practical use in switches and routers.

Since April 2004, Salil is with the School of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. Salil is a member of the Network Research Laboratory (NRL), a leading research group, consisting of 5 academic staff, 2 research fellows and over 20 Ph.D students. Salil is also a contributing researcher at NICTA.

Salil's current research interests are in the areas of pervasive computing, sensor networks, participatory sensing, mobile networking, network security and trusted networking.
