My research interests cover various aspects of information systems, distributed systems, network systems, and peer-to-peer systems. In these areas, I particularly focus on fault-tolerance, reliability, security, and performance of Internet-scale systems with decentralized---autonomous, federated, multi-organizational, and cooperative---control.

I am an Alfred P. Sloan Fellow, and recipient of the National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER award, DARPA Computer Science Study Panel (CSSP), IBM Faculty Award, the NetApp Faculty Fellowship, and the NSF Future Internet Architecture award.

Please see my group webpage for further research details and the outstanding set of students that I work with, Research Group.

I received my PhD in 2006 from the University of California, Berkeley, in the area of secure and fault-tolerant distributed wide-area storage systems (e.g. Antiquity, OceanStore, etc.). I received a B.S. in Computer Engineering from the University of Washington in 1999.
