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 passion for teaching is exemplified by my experience teaching Introduction to Networks, my PhD minor through the Delta program, and my undergraduate research experiences with Embedded Xinu (an educational operating system). My research interests include middleboxes, network management, software-defined networking, and cloud computing.
