My research has primarily focused on Internet application performance and measurement with more recent work examining issues related to Internet privacy. This work has led to a number of research publications and presentations as well as visibility in venues such as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and NPR Science Friday.
WPI is a great place for me to be a faculty member as I have the opportunity to teach and advise top-quality students as well as pursue interesting directions of research. Teaching students in systems and networking courses provides the opportunity to expose students to both the theory and practice. I like to work with students on projects as they allow close interactions in solving a problem. Being department head has allowed me to be involved with both students and faculty in new ways and have the chance to make a bigger impact on the department.
