I am a Principal Research Engineer at CSIRO Data61 in Australia (http://www.data61.csiro.au). I am also a co-founder of the Australia and New Zealand SDN Alliance (http://www.anzsdn.net), an informal alliance of organisations and individuals dedicated to fostering the uptake of SDN technology. I have worked in the networking and software industries for over 20 years and have previously held industry certifications including CCIE. I also have a PhD in Applied Mathematics from Macquarie University in Sydney.
I am currently working with a small team of engineers developing an ONOS application called CASTOR (Connectivity as a Service Top of Rack) which we are trialling over a wide area SDN testbed in Australia that we have built in conjunction with AARNet, Australia’s R&E network provider.
