Network Outage Analysis

An important problem pertaining to securing trustworthy communication is to maintain the ability to communicate. This ability is susceptible to adversarial attacks, especially in today's Internet-driven society. The technical strategies required to thwart such attacks is a not an area of research for Dr. Banerjee. However, it was observed that a lot of information about such incidents is usually available as human conversations. This led to a collaboration with researchers in computer networks, to identify and analyze the nature of such breakdown in cyber communication [Banerjee et al. 2015].
