I am a professor in the Department of Computer Science and UMIACS, studying Internet topology, reliability, and performance through measurements. My advisors were David Wetherall and Tom Anderson, and my thesis work won the SIGCOMM 2014 Test-of-time paper award. I received my Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from UC San Diego in 1997.
I was the co-chair of the departmental undergraduate honors program from 2012 to 2015, redesigning the key introduction to research class and writing a new honors web service (though only logged-in students can see the cool parts). I was the information services director (web-monkey and spam-sender) for ACM SIGCOMM 2007–2013. I am the Associate Chair of Facilities for our department, helping to ensure the design of the Iribe Center meets our needs.
In my spare time, I've 3-d printed a silverware tray, converted PWM daytime running light power to run LED lights in my CR-V, and wedged arduinos into otherwise blinkenlight-deprived toys. I write code using Rails. I commute by bike because two metro trains and a campus shuttle are too much.
