I am an Assistant Professor in the ECE Department at Carnegie Mellon University, where I am part of CyLab. My research spans networking, security, and systems. This includes work on:
  • various aspects of network and systems security
  • design and management of network appliances or ``middleboxes''
  • content/video delivery systems
  • network monitoring and measurement
