Curriculum Vitae

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

I have a strong interest in teaching. I am currently teaching Introduction to Networks. I have also completed a PhD minor through the Delta program, 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 working on my N scale model railroad.
