His research is focused an the application of machine learning for network security, network function virtualization and resource allocation in virtualized environments.

Research

  • Reinforcement Learning
  • Probabilistic Inference
  • Energy Based Models
  • Software Defined Networking
  • Network Virtualization

In his research Patrick investigates how Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Virtualization can be leveraged to incorporate techniques from Artificial Intelligence into network management and operation. His goal is to contribute towards self managing networks that do not rely on human made heuristics, but instead learn how to best run themselves.
