Abdullah Aydeger, Ph.D.

Research Interests

I currently work on various Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) related topics. Specifically, I study to propose network defense mechanisms relying on network virtualization and SDN.

I am also interested in broad range of network security problems. I am open to any research ideas within these areas.
