Support for most of my research projects comes primarily from the National Science Foundation and from industrial partners; most recently Comcast, and in the past companies such as Sprint Labs, Nortel Networks, and Siemens (see individual project pages for details).

Washington University Academic Calendar
February 2016: The paper entitled “Exploring User-Provided Connectivity” co-authored with M. H. Afrasiabi has appeared in the February 2016 issue (Vol. 24, No. 1) of the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking. I'll post an “authorizer” link for the article in the ACM DL as soon as it is available.
July 2015: The paper entitled “Migrating the Internet to IPv6: An Exploration of the When and Why” co-authored with M. Nikkhah was accepted for publication in the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking. See here for an “early-access” version of the journal paper.
May 2015: The paper entitled “Choice-based pricing for user-provided connectivity” co-authored with M. H. Afrasiabi was accepted for presentation at NetEcon 2015.
March 2015: I gave a talk entitled “Assessing the potential opportunities of user-provided connectivity” (the slides are in the source pptx format because of embedded animations) at the Workshop: Information and Communication Systems and their application to vertical sectors, held in Montevideo, Uruguay, on March 16-18, 2015.
February 2015: The paper entitled “Prioritizing Soft Real-Time Network Traffic in Virtualized Hosts Based on Xen” co-authored with C. Li, S. Xi, C. Lu, and C.D. Gill was accepted for presentation at RTAS 2015.
Our IPv6 Monitoring project has gathered several years of data on IPv6 adoption and tracked basic web performance when accessing web sites over either IPv6 and IPv4 to determine if and why differences were present. Most of the data is available on the project web site that also boasts a “query” page that allows you to customize the type of data you want to retrieve. (See the project's original introductory presentation -the audio unfortunately only starts about 7 mins into the presentation- given at the Summer 2010 ESCC/Internet2 Joint Techs conference). The project started as a joint project with Comcast and was subsequently supported by an NSF grant that enabled us to better explore the data we were gathering as well as improve the web interface that provides access to the data.
