    Associate Professor

I am the Jay Lepreau Professor in the School of Computing at the University of Utah and a director in the Flux Research Group. I came to Utah in August 2012 after more than fourteen years at AT&T Labs - Research in New Jersey. I received the AT&T Science and Technology Medal in 2010 for my work on Intelligent Route Control. In 2015 I received the USENIX Test of Time award for developing a logically centralized BGP routing controller, which was an important step towards the centralized routing controllers of Software-Defined Networks. I have broad interest in networking systems research including network management, control and operation, mobile networking, network evolution, network security and cloud computing.

Current and past projects for which I am the PI:
