I'm the Fujitsu Chair Professor in the EECS Department at MIT and lead the Networks and Mobile Systems group at
CSAIL. I'm also a Director of the
MIT Center for Wireless Networks
and Mobile Computing. My research is in the area of networked
computer systems, with current interests in networking, data
management, and sensing for a world of truly mobile devices connected
to cloud services running in datacenters. My past work has contributed
to mobile and sensor computing, wireless networks, Internet
architecture (congestion control, routing, network security), overlay
and P2P networks, and data management (stream processing and secure
databases). Short bio.
My papers and group's software.
(pre-1999) older papers and
projects include: CarTel,
CryptDB, Snoop (wireless TCP), Congestion Manager, Cricket, RON, Chord, Migrate, INS, Medusa / Borealis,
internet routing / rcc, Infranet, SFR, Divert/MRD, DOA, DQE, speak-up,
AIP, anomaly detection, HRDB, Wavescope/Wishbone, SoftPHY protocols (SoftRate,
cross-layer experimentation platform, Relational Cloud (a
database-as-a-service for the cloud, incl. Kairos)
In Spring 2012, I'm in charge of 6.02. In Fall 2012, I'm co-lecturing 6.02, but fortunately not in charge of it!
