Research Fellow (Computer Science)
Qualifications: BCMS (Hons)
I am a member of the WAND network research group. I completed my Bachelors with honours at the University of Waikato, where I am currently completing my PhD. Amongst other research interests, I work on the libtrace packet capture library.
- Software-defined networking. My research has focused on rewriting rulesets to improve the interoperability between different network devices.
- High-speed packet capture. My research has focused on utilising multi-core systems to process packets in parallel at high speed, using technologies such as DPDK.
