About the author

I am a Computer Scientist with a soft spot for Measurement, Monitoring and Networking in general. I currently work as Software Engineer but my passion for networking has remained. I like measuring all kinds of systems in complex infrastructures and interesting use cases. I rely not only on a variety of tools available in the market but also using math analytics to go deeper checking result consistency, interpret them and make predictions. My past includes working as Load & Performance Consultant, I also did R&D for Speedchecker Ltd. measuring the Internet and writing about it. I also worked for the Universidad de Chile as an external overseas consultant and representative for their research lab NICLabs-Chile. I worked 5 years for the Fraunhofer Instute FOKUS in Berlin where I researched Intelligent systems that automatically react to DDoS attacks and flash-crowds and tested network architectures, developed experimental security software for Cisco routers and made workload/security tests. I am currenlty working in Berlin as a Senior Software Engineer at Aeria Games GmbH.
