  Recent Work

My research interests span all of computer network systems, protocols and applications, and also include cloud computing, mobile systems, programmable networks, and privacy enhancing technologies.

Previously I served as a Program Director at the National Science Foundation in the Division of Computer & Network Systems in the CISE Directorate. My responsibilities included the Network Technologies & Systems (NeTS) core program, mid-scale research infrastructures including NSF Cloud, GENI, and US Ignite smart cities. I also supported Optics & Photonics, Campus CyberInfrastructure, Smart & Connected Health, and NSF partnerships with Japan, Brazil and the European Commission.

I received a 2018 NSF Director's Award for Superior Accomplishment (with T. Nandagopal, K. Calvert, and M. Houghton) for lauching the Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR) program.
