Abraham Matta is the Co-Director of the Cyberinfrastructure Research & Innovation (CRI) Lab at the Hariri Institute for computing. A professor and associate chair in the Computer Science Department, Matta received his PhD in computer science from the University of Maryland at College Park in 1995. He works on the design of network protocols and architectures based on a range of computer science principles (such as inter-process communication, decomposition, and recursion), mathematical techniques (such as probabilistic analysis, queuing theory, optimization, and control theory), and performance evaluation tools (such as simulation and emulation). Application domains include the Internet, wireless, mobile, sensor, and disruption-tolerant networks, cloud and distributed systems. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed technical papers. He received the National Science Foundation CAREER award (1997). He won a patent (2011) and two best-paper awards (2008 and 2010) on his work on wireless ad hoc and sensor networks.
