Role

Dr Peytchev is the Module Leader for Systems Software and Wireless and Mobile Communications. He also teaches on the modules Software Design and Implementation; Mobile Networking; Enterprise Computing; and Computer Architecture.

Research areas

Dr Peytchev is a member of the Intelligent Simulation, Modelling and Networking Research Group (ISMN).

Research students:

  • Ismail Kucukdurgut
  • Yueyue Li
  • Emad Gammati

Areas of research interest include the traffic simulation and modelling; mobile ad-hoc networks; ad-hoc network architecture; and mobile networking.

  • Traffic simulation and modelling: The application of mathematical models for traffic simulation and modelling. Uncertainties for producing accurate real-time predictions of the traffic flow.
  • Mobile ad-hoc networks: MANET mobile ad-hoc networks applied to the urban and motorway traffic. Design and implantation of urban traffic information systems based on ad-hoc wireless networking.
  • Ad-hoc network architecture: Introducing new ad-hoc network architectures for intelligent mobile nodes and investigating their characteristics. Identifying the range of traffic information that can be collaboratively extracted and generated by the pier-to-pier communication.
  • Mobile networking: Assessing the feasibility of using new Mobile TCP / IP (MTCP / IP) stack for delivering web-services in mobile ad-hoc network based environment. Designing new feature based location dependent services on the move.

Opportunities to carry out postgraduate research towards an MPhil/PhD exist in all the areas identified above. Further information may be obtained from the NTU Graduate School.
