My area of focus is resilient networking, where I am exploring methods of employing NIC-level hardware to increase performance and reliability. Techniques such as network coding or state replication can offer highly reliable communication, but are computationally expensive and rapidly becoming unfeasible with the advent of 100G and 400G networking. By instead offloading resilience functions to hardware, it becomes possible to have robust and fault-tolerant networks with low latency and without sacrificing throughput. However, the hardware should also as far as possible comply with the software-defined networking approach, in order to ease integration and adapt to future developments.

Areas I am investigating include P4, application specific processors, and SmartNIC system level design.
