Collaborations and Internships:

I was a visiting researcher at Internet Initiative Japan (IIJ) Research Laboratories in Tokyo from June to August 2012. Working with Cristel Pelsser. Our research involved developing the measurements setup for the economic impact of prefix deaggregation at the interdomain level, while working with large data sets (NetFlow traffic data, RRD archives for traffic monitoring, internal BGP routing data) and combing them towards obtaining a complete view on the functionality of the network.

I was a visiting grad student at CAIDA/UCSD working with Alberto Dainotti, Amogh Dhamdhere and kc claffy. Our research focused on the analsis of various data sets (BGP routing tables, active traceroute measurements, inter-AS relationship inference data, latency measurements, IP geo-location database) in order to determine, on a per-country basis, if and where the ASes active in the LAC region interconnect.
