Computer Science is a field that relies heavily on empirical evidence from experimentation. Good experimental infrastructure can open up new avenues of exploration, and can also serve as a platform for the sharing and dissemination of results. This lecture will cover a decade and a half of experience with infrastructure for networking and systems research including Emulab, GENI, and CloudLab, and will look at how we, as a research community, can foster a culture of more rigorous, repeatable re-search.
Robert Ricci received his B.S. in Computer science from the University of Utah in 2001, and his PhD in 2010. Prior to joining the faculty of the School of Computing as a Research Assistant Professor, he was a research staff member in the SoC for nine years. He is one of the leaders of the Flux Research Group, which has approximately two dozen faculty, staff, and students. Dr. Ricci's research is in the area of systems and networking, including testbeds for conducting experiments in those fields. He and the Flux Group have produced two testbeds, Emulab and ProtoGENI, that are heavily used by researchers and educators worldwide.
