- Currently, I am working for a mobile Internet startup, called NetSpira Networks, in Madrid, Spain. We work on advanced products for mobile data networks that provide things such as service-diffentiated charging using a single APN.
- I was a member of the High
Performance Networking group at Stanford and I worked with Prof. Nick McKeown. I graduated in June 2003. My old research group studies
algorithms, mechanisms and architectures that can be used in switches,
routers and networks where high performance is the driving factor.
- My research interests are circuit and packet switching, reliable
multicast and TCP flow control.
- My thesis contains my work on the use
of circuit switching in the core of the Internet.
- During my stay at Stanford, I
evaluated the performance of circuit switching as compared to other
techniques such as regular packet switching or Optical Burst Switching. I
worked on TCP
Switching, a network architecture that combines fine granularity
circuit switching in the backbone with an Internet that uses packet
switching. It uses IP flows to control the creation and destruction of
circuits in the core. Its name comes from the fact it is optimized for the
most common type of IP flows; TCP connections.
- Here are some tools I have worked on:
- ns-2 scripts for TCP Switching and Optical Burst Switching.
- Tools for analysis of
- A system-level simulator (TTsim) of the Tiny-Tera router.
- A java applet for real-time visualization (TTGraph) of the TTsim simulator.
- A similar java applet for real-time visualization (SimGraph) of the SIM simulator for fixed-length packet switches.
- A firewall for the
High-Performance Networking group at Stanford.
- Local modifications of the Xdistribute process launcher.
- During my stay at Stanford I also helped write some grant proposals, one of which received $7.5M from NSF (news clip)
PUBLICATIONS AND TALKS
You can browse some of my papers
that have been published (or have been submitted for publication).
I have the slides of some talks that I have given at different
venues. You are welcome to use the material, as long as you give proper credit.
RESUMÉ AND CURRICULUM VITAE
If you want to know more about me:
- My Resumé (PDF).
- My CV (PDF).
- Mi currículo - en español - (PDF).
- Calendus the web-based
calendaring system used at Stanford University. John Fan and I
wrote it in 1998 as a hack for the student organizations of which
we were members, but it grew up to become a system used by 200
Departments and student organizations, with more than 1500
subscribers to its email notification system. You can also see this snapshop of it from late 2000.
- IBERIA.- the Spanish Student Organization at Stanford, which I co-founded in 1998. It serves as link to all Spaniards at Stanford, and it also promotes Spanish culture and history at University and surounding areas.
If you want to know more about Spain
you always wanted to know about the Spanish names and never dared to
why do Spaniards have such long family names?)
