Research

Currently, I am interested in measuring how the internet is being used. Previously, I have done work on focused on distributed system support for remote I/O devices, focusing on both network transparency and flexibility. Generally, I am interested in the internet and distributed systems, how people use them and how to support this use. I think a lot about mobility and latency, and also about security and policy.

I am also involved in research on computer science pedagogy, specifically active learning, focusing on peer instruction, and assessment using concept inventories.

A complete list of my publications is available here.

Slides for various conference presentations I've given are here.
