Biographical Sketch

B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science, Vanderbilt University , 1987
M.S. in Information and Computer Science from Georgia Institute of Technology 1992
Ph.D. Georgia Institute of Technology 1995

I have been teaching and messing about in the areas of Networking, Systems and Mobility at Georgia Tech since 2001. Through the year 2000, I was a Senior Scientist with Empire Technologies before and during the assimilation by Concord Communications. I was an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Dayton from 1995 to 1997. From 1990 to 1995 I was a graduate student at the College of Computing of Georgia Institute of Technology . My doctoral dissertation is entitled: "Solutions For Ubiquitous Information Services: Multiple Protocols and Scalable Servers". My dissertation advisor is Prof. Mostafa Ammar. Before graduate school, I worked as a Software Engineer for Data General Corporation. DG was recently assimilated into the EMC collective.

For the Fall 2005 semester I had the pleasure of teaching at Georgia Tech Lorraine, GT's campus in Metz, France.

I greatly enjoy spending time with my wife and three growing kids. In my "spare" time I work on projects around the house, and, to quote a famous bumper sticker, "I'd rather be sailing".
