About Me

I’m a Research Associate Professor in the School of Computing at the University of Utah, and one of the directors of the Flux Research Group. I've also taught classes as an Adjunct Professor at Westminster College. I earned a PhD from the University of Utah in 2010 (advised by Jay Lepreau and Sneha Kasera), and an Honors BS from the same institution in 2001. I'm a long-time Utahn, having lived here since 1987, and I've been at the University of Utah in various capacities since 1997. You can find a lot more in my CV.


Research Interests

  assets/up-arrow

I work in infrastructure: the systems underneath the software and services that we use everyday. I've published in operating systems, networking, distributed systems, cloud computing, and more. I'm also interested in the security of those systems, because concerns of security and privacy need to be built into infrastructure from the ground up. Infrastructure is a very emprical field, requiring lots of implementation and experimentation, so I'm also interested in experiment design and analysis, and in building testbeds for research; I have worked on Emulab and its sucessors, including CloudLab, parts of GENI, and PhantomNet, since 2000. One of the fundamental parts of the research process is building on and comparing to existing systems, so I also work in research reproducibility.
