Ph.D. in Computer Science


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


I 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.

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).
