- Assistant Professor, Computer Science
I am interested in computer networking and security. Given the significance of the Internet in our economy and society, I am interested in improvements and studies that can have a real-world impact. In my prior work, I have focused on Internet-scale measurements to identify security weaknesses and under-provisioned systems that could cause widespread website outages if attacked, or if they simply failed. In my Ph.D. dissertation, I examined a redesign of the Internet that would eliminate the need for IPv4 or IPv6, but instead allow packets to be identified by DNS host names and routed using ISP network identifiers (Autonomous System Numbers) in the Internet core.
I am now interested in exploring future directions in computing from a systems, networking, and security standpoint. As smartphone adoption increases, will we see fewer desktop and laptop systems? What will this mean for network provisioning and security? I am interested in working on projects, theses, and dissertations in these directions.
Teaching is exciting for me, and I enjoy sharing my field with others. I teach in the computer networks, systems, and security areas, both at the undergraduate and graduate level. I also serve as the coach for the WPI Cyber Defense Team, which practices and competes annually in the spring.
