Research Interests

I lead the Internet Research Lab at Iowa. We are broadly interested in measurement and modeling of computer systems. Our active research topics include:

  • Privacy & Security (Anti-tracking, Mobile, IoT, Social Networks)

  • Networking (Browsers, CDN, Cellular, Video)

See our lab page for latest news and updates.

I'm always looking for passionate and self-motivated graduate and undergradaute students to work on research projects. Email me if you are interested.
