The Telecommunications Research Group at Tecnologico de Monterrey and Its Projects on Network Security

The presentation will provide an overview of the research projects conducted by the Telecommunications Research Group at Tecnologico de Monterrey and some of its technological initiatives.

Furthermore, the presentation will be focused on one of the areas of the Group which is Network Security with a different perspective. Some of the ideas to be discussed are the use of traffic monitoring for anomaly detection, algorithms based on information theory for anomaly detection and traffic trace sanitisation, as well as a linear systems paradigm for detection of attacks at the network layer in reconfigurable wireless networks.

The presentation will also contain future directions for the area of network security that are being considered in the Research Group.

Dr. Vargas is a member of the National System of Researchers (SNI), Level II, member of the Academy of Engineering of Mexico (AIM) and member of the Mexican Academy of Sciences (AMC). He has directed more than 100 graduate theses, among which are eight PhD students. Dr. Vargas is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Access Journal.

He is a senior member of the IEEE and a member of the IEEE-HKN Honors chapter (eta-kappa-nu). He is a co-author of the book Position Location Techniques and Applications (Academic Press/Elsevier) and co-inventor of the patent (2012) method and system for locating mobile stations, in addition to a book in multiple access, another in wireless communications and another about the operational amplifier.

He was the Director of the PhD program in information and communications technologies at Tecnologico de Monterrey from 2012 to 2016. He has completed research stays and collaborated as Visiting Scholar at the University of California, Berkeley and Arizona State University. He is currently the Leader of the Research Group in Telecommunications of the Tecnologico de Monterrey. His research interests are personal communications systems and networks, 5G, cognitive radio, MIMO systems, mobility, stochastic modeling, localization, and interference mitigation methods.
