About

I am a researcher in the Austin Research Laboratory (ARL) within IBM Research.
My interests lie in computer systems, with an emphasis on datacenter network management, wireless communication, and mobile computing.
Previously, I was employed as a Senior Member of the Technical Staff at AT&T Labs - Research.
I received my PhD from The University of Texas at Austin and my BS from The University of Wisconsin-Madison.
