About

I am a passionate software engineer, a full-stack web developer, a proponent of agile methodologies, and currently a Senior Software Engineer at HomeAway.com, Inc. where I work on the Order Management team.

Background

I received my B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas in 2006, and my M.S.E from the same in 2008.

I completed my Ph.D. in 2012 on the topic of adaptive middleware for DTNs, specifically in using context to adapt routing algorithms. During my Ph.D. I worked on a middleware for delay-tolerant networks which enabled nodes to opportunistically and automatically make use of delay-tolerant networking protocols and routing algorithms given challenged networking conditions, while at the same time operate on a standard TCP/IP stack depending on network conditions. The middleware also collected and analyzed ‘lightweight’ network context in order to inform that decision. I worked on a variation of my dissertation research during an internship at Deutsche Telekom Labs which led to a granted European Union patent on the topic of adaptive content delivery for cellular networks. While at the University of Texas, I also collaborated with researchers at the Laboratory for Telecommunication Sciences on a novel routing algorithm using network coding, for which we published the first real-world (non-simulated) implementation.

This website is more-or-less a repository of my PhD research and a place to post other interesting projects. For further details about my qualifications, please see my LinkedIn profile.
