My research interests center around improving networked-systems with rigorous methods.

In particular, computer networking today is increasingly hard to manage. This is in sharp contrast to relational data structured in a database that allows easy access and rapid innovation. In this project, we ask why cannot (or how can) we turn network management into a data problem that can be automated in modern databases. In the Ravel project, we study how unique network challenges can be addressed with unconventional database techniques.

I am recruiting PhD students. If you are interested in rigorous methods and challenging real-world problems — mathematics, database techniques, formal methods, programming languages, the long-standing Internet, and the exciting trends in today’s networks — check my research, cv, and drop me an email.
