UPDATE: I have successfully defended my thesis and graduated from UIUC (April 2009). Please see below for contact information.

Jay Patel (me!) I am presently was a graduate student in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign working under the guidance of Dr. Indranil Gupta, as part of the Distributed Protocols Research Group. I previously attended The University of Texas - Pan American, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, along with a minor in Mathematics. My formative years were spent at The Science Academy of South Texas.



My primary research interest is in improving distributed systems, where in I focus on protocol design and analysis. My efforts have been focused on improving content delivery, and for improving application-level multicast using social network principles. On the side, I also dabble with wireless networks. Recently, I have worked on designing a new routing system for Wireless Mesh Networks.
