More Info :


I got my Ph.D. in 1996 from the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, The Weizmann Institute of Science. After that, I was a visiting lecture at the U.C. Berkeley and a post-doctoral fellow at the International Computer Science Institute, (ICSI) Berkeley, CA. Before joining the CS faculty, I was a Member of the Technical staff, at the Networking Research Laboratory at Bell labs, Lucent Technologies.
You can go to my page there, and read about my past activities.
Recently, I spent a year on a Sabbatical at Google Mountain View.


My main research interests are the theory and applications of management related problems in IP networks. In particular I am working in the following directions :

Satelite Efficient Network and System Management

Satelite Network aware services and Programmable Networks

Satelite Wireless and cellular networks

Satelite Theory of network and system management

Satelite QoS routing, Network location problems, and other network related optimization problems

You can find my CV here, recent Publications (not updated) here and the students I'm working with here.


Satelite Current courses: Introduction to Computer Networks (Spring 2010).
