I am a senior researcher with 12 years of experience in optical network optimization, conception and performance evaluation. My key areas of expertise and competences are: a) optical packet/burst switching technology and hybrid optical packet(burst) switching/optical circuit switching technology for use in future data centers, future metro-access/metropolitan/backbone networks and future 5G network (e.g. fronthaul and Xhaul parts of network); b) optical network planning/dimensioning; c) performance evaluation and traffic engineering mechanisms in optical networks; d) network traffic description and modeling; e) conception of new control plane and physical layer mechanisms, such as scheduling, admission control mechanisms, mechanisms for ensuring quality-of-service, stability, synchronization, optical network virtualization, NFV, etc; f) conception of new optical networks, by inventing novel node architectures, network architectures, network protocols and data link layer mechanisms of ISO/OSI layer reference model (the innovation is based on the requirements and properties of the optical components, desired network/system properties, and confirmed by system and architecture validation by theoretical and experimental studies); g) application of machine learning (reinforcement learning) for building the network solutions and mechanisms (at data link and physical layer) that are model-free and adaptive to the change of network conditions.
For the first time in the world, together with my co-authors, I have contributed to the following problems (in the optical packet switching networks): 1) the stability of the insertion process when using the fast-tunable lasers; 2) the optical network virtualization of torus data centers; 3) the deterministic scheduling with zero-jitter for slotted networks with fixed inter-slot intervals.
I hold a Ph.D. degree in information and communication science and technology from Télécom Bretagne, Brest, France (2010), and M.Sc. degree in telecommunications from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Belgrade, Serbia (2006). I was born on 20th March 1981 in Zrenjanin, Serbia.
Since 2014, I work like a research engineer at Nokia Bell Labs in Nozay.
