Research

I am broadly interested in the areas of networking and distributed systems. My research is motivated by the growing complexity (scale, heterogeneity, and distributed control) of today's networked systems. My projects focus either on understanding how well existing systems work in practice or on building new systems. We use a combination of measurement, analysis, design, and implementation methodologies to achieve our goals.

Current Research Projects:

In the past, I have worked on peer-to-peer systems and overlay routing systems.
