Biography

I'm responsible for contributing to and leading Internet Society projects related to advancing the development and deployment of open standards and promoting the Internet's collaborative development model. Right now I'm very interested in data analysis and data visualization techniques to help communicate Internet evolution to a broad audience. 

I work closely with the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) to promote greater collaboration between the networking research community and the IRTF. My background is in network security and collaborative research and development. 

When I'm not wrangling data or walking the dog, I love to go sailing.
