I'm broadly interested in aspects on computer networks and systems. My research focuses on formal network testing, software-defined network, and programmable hardware. Recently, I worked on automatic data plan testing systems, including ATPG and Libra, helping network engineers better troubleshoot massive scale networks.

I was also a core hardware developer in the NetFPGA project. NetFPGA is a hardware platform for networking research and education. Many research systems run on NetFPGA, and it is being used around the world. I was a lead developer on NetFPGA-10G, the next generation 80Gbps platform for prototyping the future Internet.
