Curriculum Vitae

Hello, I'm Aaron Gember-Jacobson, a PhD student in the Wisconsin Institute on Software-defined Datacenters Of Madison (WISDoM) in the Computer Science department at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. My advisor is Aditya Akella. My research interests include middleboxes, software-defined networks, and cloud networks.

I also have a strong interest in teaching and learning. I've completed a PhD minor through the Delta program at UW-Madison, and my undergraduate research experiences with Embedded Xinu were heavily focused on enhancing Xinu as a teaching tool.

When I need a break from being a graduate student, I like to spend my time cooking, model railroading, and decorating for Christmas.
