In Nimbus, CIT, Victor has worked primarily on controlling network functionality and behaviour, in terms of achieving end-to-end constraints (reliability and latency), supporting concurrent, isolated, flows, maximising the network capacity, and preventing anomalous or malicious behaviour. He has applied his work in short (802.15.4) and long-range (LoRa) wireless as well as in core networks (SDN).
Dr. Cioncas work is very hands-on, he likes to validate his work on actual hardware and encourages his students to do the same and develop testbeds for experimentation.
Dr. Cionca is a Funded Investigator with CONFIRM.
