I am a senior research scientist in Georgia Tech's School of Computer Science, who engages hundreds of students each semester in mobile development, networking and the Internet of Things. I emphasize innovation, entrepreneurship and industry involvement in student projects and application development. I am the co-director of the Georgia Tech Research Network Operations Center (GT-RNOC), which supports research efforts across campus, and principal leader of the Convergence Innovation Competition, which pairs students and industry sponsors on novel projects. I have played a leadership role in the NSF GENI project, leading both the GT campus trials efforts as well as the GENI@SoX regional deployment and the Software Defined Exchange (SDX). I am active in the startup community, including roles with the National Science Foundation Innovation Corps program and as a principle with Empire Technologies during its acquisition 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.

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".
