Hi, I’m Srinivas Shakkottai. I have been an assistant professor at the Dept. of ECE at Texas A&M University since Spring 2008. I received my PhD in Electrical Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in March 2007, and was a postdoctoral associate at Stanford University till December 2007.

Research

Broadly speaking, my research interests center around communication networks, with an emphasis on the Internet. Over the past few years, I have had the good fortune to collaborate with several different research centers specializing in both analytical and measurement based approaches.

My focus areas include content distribution including P2P methods, network economics, learning and game theory, wireless ad-hoc networks, and the measurement and analysis of Internet data. You can find an overview of my core research areas here.

I am also interested in systems design and development, particularly on the wireless side. I co-direct the Smart Phone Initiative.
