"If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?" Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Prof. Ammari's primary research interests lay in the area of wireless sensor and mobile ad hoc networks. In particular, he is interested in energy-efficient data dissemination, coverage, connectivity, and fault-tolerance in wireless sensor networks. Specifically, his research focuses on the design, analysis, and implementation of optimized and localized fault-tolerant, energy-efficient data dissemination and topology control protocols for promoting the longevity of wireless sensor networks. Another facet of his research work is concerned with the design of secure, adaptive, and fault-tolerant architectures for connecting wireless sensor and mobile ad hoc networks to the global IP Internet with a goal to provide the user with seamless ways to access the sensed data. In his research, he uses fundamental concepts and models from computational geometry, such as Voronoi diagram and Delaunay triangulation; graph theory, such as connectivity and conditional connectivity; and physics and chemistry, such as percolation theory. Prof. Ammari's research areas of interest can be summarized as follows:

  • Wireless sensor networks

  • Cyber physical systems

  • Mobile ad-hoc networks

  • Mobile wireless Internet

  • Computational geometry

Prof. Ammari's Home

Wireless Sensor and Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (WiSeMAN) Research Lab is looking for one highly self-motivated full-time Ph.D. student to conduct cutting-edge research in the area of wireless sensor networks in the Department of Computer and Information Science at the University of Michigan-Dearborn.

  • Graduated Master Students

    • Raymond Mulligan (currently working with Arris Group), May 2011.

    • Dennis Mirante, August 2011.

Prof. Ammari leads the Wireless Sensor and Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (WiSeMAN) Research Lab whose objective is to conduct fundamental research in wireless sensor and mobile ad-hoc networking. He will consider motivated Master students as well as senior undergraduate students to actively participate in WiSeMAN Research Lab, where both theory and practice are connected. The focus of WiSeMAN Research Lab is on coverage, connectivity, deployment, data routing and data dissemination, fault tolerance, and security in wireless sensor networks. Specifically, WiSeMAN Research Lab emphasizes the design, analysis, and implementation of energy-efficient topology control and data dissemination protocols for wireless sensor networks with a goal to optimize the very scarce energy resources of the sensors and extend the network lifetime. He believes that real experiments are very critical for research in wireless sensor networks. Therefore, WiSeMAN Research Lab will have the necessary equipments in terms of motes, such as MICAZ motes, as well as all other required interfaces, such as MIB 510 programming boards and sensor boards, to build up a sensor testbed, which will help students to conduct real experiments. Any sound protocol designed to be used by the sensor nodes should be first implemented to assess its practicality. Conducting real experiments will help students discover other types of problems and work hard to solve them.

If you are interested to work with Prof. Ammari on your Ph.D. Dissertation, Master's thesis, or independent study project that is related to his research topics and you feel that WiSeMAN Research Lab is a perfect place for you, please send him an email at or drop by his office at 129 CIS Building.
