Congratulations, Dr. Brockelsby !

Will successfully defended his doctoral thesis in October, 2022! He has been working full time as a Network Engineer and Architect at Duke University, but managed to make progress on research, and publishing, even while doing so. His work focused on the evolutionary use of Software Defined Networking techniques in real enterprise networks, by studying the pros and cons of such deployments in real-world environments, and identifying optimal factoring and placement of network policy, from the level of individual tables within Network Elements, to enterprise-wide views. In the final stretch of his doctoral work, Will focused on the large-scale end of such deployments.
