I'm the Chief Cook and Bottle Washer in the CTO&A organization at Cisco Systems and I'm based in Amsterdam. Our work currently addresses high-performance packet routing through flexible cloud-based service chains and developing concepts of basing computer networks on named information — not quite Information Centric Networking, but definitely related. My interests are in secure, large-scale high-performance parallel and distributed systems.
I'm also a part-time professor in the Pervasive Systems Group in the Faculty of Electronics, Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Twente., where I teach the Distributed Systems course.
Before joining Cisco, I worked in the Unix Room at Bell Labs Murray Hill for ten years. Here, we worked on operating systems (Plan 9 from Bell Labs, Inferno) and Base Station Routers. We built a prototype Femto BSR, a tiny UMTS base station suitable for the home and we worked on prototypes for LTE networks. After that, I led the Wireless Systems team at Bell Labs Antwerp.
