I am an experimental computer scientist. I validated my ideas through prototypes to understand, model, and verify observations. My research interests lie at the intersection of distributed systems and networking with particular emphasis on large-scale networked systems, ranging from sensor and mobile networks to overlay networks and data centers.
In the past, among other things, I have been working on the CamCube and Predictable Datacenters projects, aiming to providing a better integration and synergy between applications and networks in data centers to improve performance and reduce complexity. More details can be found here.
My current research investigates how to improve data center networks through a deep rethinking of the way these networks are built and operated, leveraging the availability of new hardware technologies such as systems-on-chip (SoCs), distributed switching fabrics, and optical networks.
