My current work is focused on:
I am currently a Senior Network Scientist in the Network Research group at Raytheon BBN Technologies in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Before joining BBN, I worked for The Advanced Technology Group (ATG) at NetApp in Waltham, MA, designing protocols for a distributed, global-scale federated file systems and investigating new storage architectures to leverage the properties of flash memory to create systems with unparalled price/performance (and performance/watt) ratios
I also worked for Sun Labs at Sun in Burlington, Massachusetts, designing and prototyping distributed systems and large, fault tolerant data storage systems including Neuromancer and Project DarkStar.
I was a member of the Systems Research at Harvard (SyRaH) group of the Harvard University School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, from which I graduated with a Ph.D. in June 2004. My thesis advisor was Margo Seltzer and the other members of my thesis committee were Matt Welsh, Jim Waldo, and Michael Rabin.
Prior to attending graduate school, I worked for BBN Laboratories and HARK, doing research and development in real-time speech recognition, logistics, underwater acoustics, distributed computing, and whatever else needed doing.Other Stuff
I've written a book of humorous essays that has been highly rated and glowingly reviewed by both my friends and family. You can find it on Amazon.
I currently serve as the president, foundation chair, and webmaster for the Rotary Club of Belmont (it's a small club). I will soon turn over the presidency to someone else, but I'll probably be foundation chair and webmaster for years.
I enjoy gardening and regularly post photos of the flowers (and occasional fauna) in my yard on itzat, the greatest photo-sharing site you've never heard of.
