I do research on Internet-scale computer networks and distributed systems. My research approach is primarily experimental -- building and evaluating ideas in “the wild”. Much of my work focuses on improving the visibility of measurement on networked systems, leveraging this visibility to characterize them and the infrastructure they rely on, and designing new and improved systems based on the gained insight. As the forces shaping the Internet ecosystem are less purely technical, in recent years I have started to explore the interactions between pervasive networked systems and their broader context, from natural disaster, to political unrest and economics. more?
I am always looking for good students interested in networked systems (distributed
systems, networking, wired and mobile systems).
Nick Feamster and I co-chaired the ACM Internet Measurement Conference 2020. Among the many changes we introduced to the review process, the use of a Review Task Force and Early Rejections seem to be popular and have been adopted by several other great conferences since.
Fabián E. Bustamante is a Professor of Computer Science
University and Lead Scientist at Phenix,
a Chicago-baserd startup focused on real-time video streaming, at scale. Fabián
completed his M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Georgia
Institute of Technology in 2001.
Before going to Georgia Tech, he studied and taught at the Universidad Nacional de La Patagonia
San Juan Bosco (Argentina), from which he received both a
3-year and a 5-year-and-project degrees in computer science. His
research interests span several areas of experimental systems,
with a focus on networking and distributed systems. As part of their work,
he and his research group have released tens of open-source systems that
together have gained over 1.5 million users worldwide. Fabián is an ACM and
IEEE senior member, a recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER award and the Science
Foundation of Ireland E.T.S. Walton Visitor Award.

Jeanine and I run long distance (marathons, half-marathons, and 10k).
I train using the advanced plan from Hansons Brothers, which I highly recommend. For years I used a program that closely
follows Pfitzinger and Douglas in Advanced
marathoning and one season I tried the Furman's
FIRST three-days+cross marathon plan, but had to go back to the old approach -- long
