My research interests falls into the area of Networks and Distributed Systems. More specifically, I am really interested in the application of datamining and machine learning algorithms in the area of Networking (MineNet). Currently, I am working with Prof. Xiaowei Yang on a research that is related to Typo-Squatting detection. Typo-squatting refers to the process of registering domain names that are similar to other domain names (target domain names) that are usually popular and experience a huge traffic. Typo-squatting highly depends on the user typos while typing the web addresses to get the user into other web sites registered by the typo-squatters. This sort of practice may be harmful/disturbing to users and the target domain name owners. For example, the typo domains could have inappropriate contents for users, copy right violations, or spy wares and viruses. The goal of the project is to develop an automatic typo-squatting detection, measures the amount of hijacked traffic, and develop a system that would reduce the access to typo-squatting domains.
