Prior to starting at AT&T, I was a postdoctoral researcher working with Professor Jen Rexford at the Department of Computer Science, Princeton University. My research seeks to unify the network and host systems at its edge. Traditionally, the line between network and edge has been clearly demarcated. Network devices (e.g., switches) forward packetized data, while edge devices (e.g., hosts) produce and consume data. Yet, recent trends in cloud computing and big data call for reassessment of this model. My work integrates edge and network, enabling systems to leverage the combined strength of hosts and switches in tandem.

My research has:

My main current project is Pyretic, a programming platform for software-defined networks, whose development I lead.

I also keep a blog, which, despite my best intentions, I rarely update nowadays.
