Mobile_localization_GorlatovaI examined a range of wireless network security and mobile localization topics at Telcordia Technologies, Defense R&D Canada, and Disney Research Zurich. At Telcordia, I worked on a DARPA-funded ZODIAC project, defining routing and location management functionalities for a secure wireless ad hoc system architecture. In my M.Sc. research, partially supported by Defense R&D Canada, I developed algorithms for wormhole attack detection in wireless ad hoc networks. At Disney Research Zurich I focused on providing proprietary mobile location services in Wi-Fi and femtocell networks. We proposed and evaluated approaches for preventing third parties from providing location services using proprietary on-site Wi-Fi and femtocell networks, and developed and evaluated methods for providing different levels of location services to authorized mobile devices.
