I am a student at College of Computer and Information Science (CCIS) at Northeastern University working with Prof. Guevara Noubir. I earned my B.Sc. in Computer Science at the College of Science and Engineering at Universidad San Francisco de Quito in 2001. I also obtained a M.Sc. in networks and security from CCIS in 2008.
My research focuses on wireless, mobile, and residential network security and privacy. I enjoy both building systems that challenge the way systems and protocols handle people's information, and ones that not only bring theoretical results but also implement them in real world.
Ph.D. Thesis Proposal
Open Infrastructure is a wireless network research framework we have developed to aid us in deploying new solutions in a consistent environment on residential network devices. Through it we seek to leverage the large numbers of broadband subscribers to build ubiquitous, reliable and secure services that are low in cost, power, and administrative overhead. Some of our projects include secure WiFi access, Edge Cloud storage, and residential CDNs.
Open Infrastructure is built from off-the-shelf hardware and customized router firmware that inclues a management tool suite and several utilities for experimental data gathering.
