About the author

I am a post doc researcher in the Advanced Network Architecture group at MIT and a research collaborator with Akamai Technologies. My current research centers around developing data-driven approaches to measure Internet reliability, resilience, and security. Prior to joining MIT, I earned my PhD (proof picture) from TU Berlin, advised by Anja Feldmann. In the summer of 2015, I was a research intern in the Custom Analytics Group at Akamai in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In the summers of 2013 and 2014, I was a visiting researcher at ICSI in Berkeley, California. I am broadly interested in methods to mine and understand data at scale with an emphasis on measurements assessing structure, performance, and security of the Internet. In my PhD work I explored the phenomenon of IPv4 address space exhaustion and its consequences for the Internet and its stakeholders. My research was awarded with a Best Paper Award at ACM IMC 2016, an IRTF Applied Networking Research Prize 2017, and selected “Best of CCR” in 2015.

Address Assignment Practices in IPv4 and IPv6

In prior work, we've studied IPv4 allocation patterns in domestic ISPs. Time has passed, and IPv6 adoption has continued, so in this article we review our current observations on IPv4 and IPv6 assignment practices.
