HomeMaestro strives to put order in the chaos of home networks through an end-host distributed solution that requires no additional assistance from network equipment such as routers or access points or modification of network applications. HomeMaestro performs extensive measurements at the host level to infer application network requirements, and identifies network related problems through time-series analysis. HomeMaestro automatically detects and resolves contention over network resources.
I am a Principal Researcher and heading up a Networks, Economics, and Algorithms team at Cambridge.

Network Inference is a research project theme in which the network end-system (i.e., the computer) infers properties about the behaviour of the network and other end-systems in order to get a better experience. Such improvements might be better sharing or improved latency through reduced queueing and the like. Past Contributors Laurent Massoulie

This simulator provides four distributed algorithms which solve the random distributed log-based reconciliation problem, an important problem occurring in Computer Supported Cooperative Work. The problem is formalized using the Distributed Constraint Satisfaction paradigm. In the worst case, the message passing and time complexities of the algorithms range from O(p^2) to O(2^p) in a system of…

Economics/Game Theory Positions
We are actively looking for outstanding Researchers and Post-docs with a background in Economics, Algorithmic Game Theory or related areas to enhance and complement our existing research work in ad auctions, network economics/congestion pricing and reputation systems.
Post-Doc and Researcher Positions
We have a small number of openings in the Systems and Networking group for Post-docs and Researchers. Candidates should hold a PhD, or expect to complete their PhD shortly, and should have a track record of publication in the leading conferences or journals. Further details can be found on the Cambridge Lab web page.
We have opportunities for strong mid-term PhD candidates available throughout the year – please click on the link for detailed information. I am personally interested in taking on interns outside the summer – and in the areas of economics and game theory – please email me directly on this.
