Welcome!    This page is devoted to my research links and a few other interesting things.

Where I work:   I have recently (in June 2014) left Boeing after 13 years of employment, where I was a Boeing Technical Fellow in the Research & Technology division.  I am presently an Affiliate Professor in Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA.

Current research interests

My current focus is on developing open-source networking software.

Affiliations and professional service

Past experiences

Prior to Boeing, I worked at Geocast Network Systems (a former technology company focused on developing an end-to-end data broadcasting system, using MPEG-2 based broadcast systems, for consumers), where we studied reception characteristics of the emerging ATSC digital television standard. I also helped to design and implement Geocast's IP-based data broadcasting network, which distributed data feeds via satellite to several U.S. television stations.

I obtained my Ph.D. in EECS at U.C. Berkeley in the late 1990s, where I was a member of the BARWAN/Daedalus research project (short video here)

I also worked for COMSAT Laboratories (now part of Viasat) for several years in their data networking division.

Before that, I attended Stanford University for undergraduate and Masters degrees. My hometown is Greensburg, PA, outside of Pittsburgh.
