🔬Ph.D. Research Statement

In my doctoral studies, I am working on the controller placement problem in Software Defined Wireless Sensor Networks (SDWSN). Specifically, I am utilizing the Sailfish Optimization based Controller Selection (SFO-CS) approach for selecting optimal nodes as Control Nodes (CNs) in SDWSN. This solution aims to address the challenge of selecting optimal CNs efficiently in SDWSN, considering factors such as energy consumption and computing power. Additionally, I am exploring Machine Learning (ML) based techniques to enhance the intelligence and robustness of SDWSNs, particularly focusing on Deep Learning (DL) to minimize transmission distance and energy consumption.
