Prof. Ibrahim Matta


I am a PhD student advised by Prof. Matta, and have been working on the RINA project since 2010. RINA is a new network architecture that is based on the fundamental principle that networking is inter-process communication (IPC). It recurses the IPC service over different scopes. I am the lead student in prototyping, and ProtoRINA, Boston University's prototype of the RINA architecture, is now released. [ProtoRINA in the News]

My research interests include computer network management, multi-layer network design, future network architecture, Software-Defined Networking (SDN), and Network Function Virtualization (NFV).
