Bio

I'm currently a senior lecturer in the Computer Science department at Waikato. Prior to that, I was a research scientist (2014-2015) and a postdoc (2012-2014) at CAIDA, UC San Diego, and a lecturer (2006-2010) / senior lecturer (2011) at the University of Waikato. I'm the author of scamper, a packet-prober used in the Ark project at CAIDA and Dyn Research to collect IP-level Internet topology data.

Research Interests

  • Collecting and analysing router and AS-level Internet topology data, especially (1) economic relationships between ASes, (2) inferring the router-level topology, and (3) development of distributable software for collecting IP-level data.
  • Internet topology, routing, and performance in IPv6, particulary the interactions with middleboxes and future evolution.
  • Troubleshooting of IP networks, particulary TCP performance issues.
  • Deployment of Source Address Validation (BCP38) via the spoofer project.

Service

  • TPC member for PAM 2016, IMC 2015, C2B(I)D 2015, WNM 2014, PAM 2014 and TMA 2014
  • Reviewer for IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, ACM Transactions on Internet Technology, IEEE Security and Privacy, PAM 2011 (external), Elsevier Computer Networks, IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management

  • Blind Attacks on TCP [pdf]
  • Internet Interdomain Congestion [pdf]
  • AS Relationships and Customer Cones [pdf]
  • Internet-scale IPv6 Alias Resolution [pdf]
