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.
