I'm best known for some work I did while employed by the Applied Research Area of Bell Communications Research which is now Telcordia Technologies. I designed and constructed an Ethernet monitoring device that allowed very long traffic traces to be recorded with very accurate timestamps and without loss of data. The data from the traces I made was used by a team of statisticians to show that Ethernet traffic is self-similar or fractal in nature, and that it displays long-term dependence.
I was priveleged to take part in writing a number of papers on the results of this research. Information on the most significant of the publications I was co-author on and why this research was important can be found here. A complete list of publications I contributed to can be found here.
