I am a Sr. Staff Researcher and Co-director of the VMware Academic Program which looks at external research and emerging technologies. Our office collaborates with top academic researchers and internal technical leaders to explore forward-looking and often disruptive technical trends and topics.
I have worked in a variety of technical roles over the years related to enterprise computing, including several years as a senior software engineer. My work in research over the last decade has spanned computer security, communications, system software, hardware architectures, and more.
I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2005.
