About Me

I am currently a Senior Performance Engineer at Akamai Technologies. Before joining Akamai, I received my Ph.D. degree in January 2017 from the Computer Science Department at Boston University, advised by Prof. Ibrahim Matta.

Research Interests

I have been working on the RINA project since 2010. RINA is a new network architecture based on the fundamental principle that networking is inter-process communication (IPC), and it recurses the IPC service over different scopes. I was the lead student in prototyping, and ProtoRINA (Boston University's prototype of the RINA architecture) is available online. [ProtoRINA in the News]

My research interests include Computer Network Management, Multi-layer Network Design, Future Network Architecture, Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Content Delivery Network (CDN).
