|I am a Ph.D. student in the Networking and Telecommunications Group of in the College of Computing at Georgia Tech. My current research includes creating distributed simulations of telecommunications networks, using potentially non-homogenous simulation frameworks. We are also looking at issues relating to multicast join and leave semantics as they relate to the pruning and grafting of the multicast routing tree.|
I'm blessed with a wonderful family.
|My wife of over fourteen years, Kris Nagel (a research scientist here at Georgia Tech and part-time PhD Student)|
|My daughter Jenn Riley who recently received a Master's degree in Musicology from Indiana University, and is working at the Music Library at IU.|
|My son Pat Riley who is a PhD Student Carnegie Mellon University (studying computer science of course),|
|My son Michael Riley who is a fifthgrader at Oak Grove Elementary School in Dekalb County Ga. (the picture here is somewhat out of date..that's him as a Kindergartener)|
|My son Matthew Riley who is 3 years old.|

Considerable experience with Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Control Data Corporation hardware and software systems.
Presently Ph.D. Student at Georgia Institute of Technology.
Developed a commercial software product written in "C" and DEC Alpha Assembler for emulation of CDC Cyber computers on DEC Alpha platform.
Over the years, duties have been primarily to provide systems software support to the Air Force at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Central Computer Complex.
This support has included conversion of all Cyber operating system modifications to new system levels on two separate occasions; additional classified data security modifications; benchmarking, installation and checkout of new CDC Cyber 860 computer systems; complete code level documentation of all locally generated system programs; development of an on-line data-base system to track system modifications and analysts activities; coding and checkout of the software interface from the CYBERs to the DEC VAX RSDS; and numerous other software efforts as directed by the Air Force.
Provided support to Control Data Corporation in the installation of the dual CYBER 750 real-time systems for the MDPS project at Vandenberg Air Force Base.
Instructed numerous training classes for Control Data in many facets of the NOS operating system.
Headed a team of four programmers in an commercially successful applications software effort for the IBM Personal Computer.
Designed, coded, and debugged the software for the CDCNET/JDIF front end communications processor at the CCC, which is an Ethernet based, networked front end.
