Research Expertise and Interests
Networking and communication among distributed systems and applications, particularly in new, challenging, and novel contexts and application scenarios:
• Survivable, resilient networks, disruption tolerant end-to-end protocols, and
adaptive applications with inter-layer awareness and control loops
• High-speed networking and user-to-user communication, particularly with
high bandwidth-×-delay products and delay tolerance (weak/episodic
connectivity and satellite to interplanetary latencies)
• Active, cognitive, adaptive, programmable, and extensible network
architectures and components; network processors and networked storage
• Ubiquitous and pervasive computing and mobile communication
• Heterogeneous end systems, network components, link and subnetwork types
(including sensor/actuator nets, ubiquitous computing, and the
wireless/optical interface) and their unification in the global information
infrastructure for distributed applications
• Network signalling, monitoring, control, and management
• Resource tradeoffs between end / intermediate systems, and among memory,
processing, communication bandwidth, energy consumption, and latency
• Scalable large systems of systems and their interactions, including networks,
computer and switch architecture, operating systems, and applications
• The discovery and application of fundamental principles for systemic and
systematic architecture, simulation, and design of distributed systems,
networks, and protocols
• Education of students and young researchers through teaching, mentoring,
and leadership in conferences, journals, and professional societies

D.Sc. in Computer Science
Axon: A Host–Network Interface Architecture for Gigabit Communications Axon was the first zero-copy host-network interface and uses distributed virtual shared memory over a wide area network for interprocess communication. The pipelined network interface includes a hardware implementation of integrated layer processing (layer smashing), as well as rate (flow) and error control. Axon was extensively simulated at 1 Gb/s, including the hardware error and flow control mechanisms at the gate level.

Group leader and document editor, DARPA Strategic Networking research agenda Confidential, 2003–2004.
1999 – 2003 Confidential Cambridge, Massachusetts
Senior Network Scientist
Responsible for development of new research agenda, both internally and in conjunction with funding agency program managers; proposal writing in response to solicitations, technical leadership and project anagement of funded research projects.
• Co-PI (with Alden Jackson), Secure Environment for Network Control, Monitoring, and Management (SENCOMM), DARPA ITO Active Networks program, 1999–2003. SENCOMM is an architecture and implementation of an active MEE (management execution environment) that provides the basis for active network monitoring and control. SENCOMM has been deployed on the ABone and prototype MAAs (management active applications) include ABone monitoring, intrusion/anomaly detection, and multicast tree topology mapping/monitoring. Project collaboration with University of Kentucky, USC/ISI, Columbia University, and ETH Zürich.
• Group leader and document editor, DARPA Strategic Networking research agenda (NetVision), 2002–2003.
• Technical contributor, Optical Transport Network Architecture and Cryptography project, US Government project, 2003.
• Technical contributor, Knowledge Plane seedling project, DARPA IPTO, 2003.
• Member of NewArch project, DARPA ITO NGI, 2002–2003.
• PI, Web VADE MECUM (WVM), DARPA ITO WiaB program, 2001–2002.
WVM is a prototype latency-aware web browser that estimates response time (based on various criteria including past history and current channel conditions) and colors links accordingly (red = slow, yellow = cached, green = recently cached or fast). Users can then explicitly determine fetch behaviour by right clicking (normal fetch from source, display cached, display cached and nonblocking fetch from source). WVM is targetted to weakly and episodically connected clients as well as very long latencies (e.g. interplanetary). WVM is a user directed application solution for DTNs that relies on knowledge of network conditions.
• PI, Survivable Mobile Wireless Information Networks, DARPA ATO SUMOWIN program, 2001–2002. SUMOWIN was a seedling program to help form a new DARPA program. We investigated a number of techniques for mobile wireless survivability summarized in the WiSe 2002 paper. Key concepts include forwarding even when an end-to-end path does not exist through the network (no routing convergence), and nodes physically transporting data (store-and-haul).
• PI, Transport Protocol Mechanisms and TCP Enhancements for High-Speed Wireless Networks, NASA GRC and ESTO, 2000–2002. We explored generic mechanisms for corruption/congestion discrimination and signalling, as well as two specific mechanisms for improving the performance of transport protocols in wireless networks: ETEN (explicit transport error notification) for which we simulated a theoretical performance bound and analysed several specific mechanisms; Swift Start in which we use capacity estimation and pacing to quickly open the TCP window while minimising burstiness and avoiding congestion.
• Technical lead for internal Mobile Ubiquitous Computing and Communication program development, including a systematic understanding of the protocols and algorithms needed for auto-configuration and self-organisation of mobile ad hoc networks, 1999-2001.
• Co-PI (with Martha Steenstrup), Network Architectures for Unpiloted Combat Arial Vehicles (UCAVs), ONR, 1999–2000.
• Technical Contributor and mentor to first-time PI (Rajesh Krishnan), PetaWeb High-Speed Optical IP Infrastructure, DARPA ITO NGI program (Nortel subcontract), 1999–2000. In this work we were concerned with the impact of the deployment of large densely connected optical backbones in the Internet, as part of the NGI NTONC program, and investigated the performance of TCP over a load reactive link (similar to a use-it-or-lose-it traffic class).
• Co-PI (with Rajesh Krishnan), Generic Control Mechanism for Multihop Wireless Networks, DARPA ITO GloMo program, 1999-2000. Collaboration with University of Texas.
1999 –2002 Confidential, Massachusetts

Principal Member of Technical Staff
Principal Investigator of Internet Multimedia Services Project Technical lead for research projects, internal funding proposals, and supervisor of one full time research staff and several interns.
• Designed and prototyped a session control architecture for location-independent heterogeneous personal communication. Users are able to communicate with one another by name (e.g. “call Alice”) without knowing any other details. A name database resolves to user agents, which serve as an individual’s point-of-presence in the network with knowledge of location and communication preferences and capabilities. The user agents negotiate to establish the communication session.
• Early participation in the CANES (composable active network elements) DARPA ITO Active Nets project with Georgia Tech. 1994 – 1997 GTE Laboratories Waltham, Massachusetts Senior Member of Technical Staff Project leader for Internet Multimedia Services Project.
