Srinivasan Keshav is Professor in the Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo.

Biography[edit]

After undergraduate studies at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi in 1986, he received his PhD in 1991 from the University of California, Berkeley, with a thesis entitled Congestion Control in Computer Networks. His advisor was Domenico Ferrari.[3] He then joined the research staff at Bell Labs; while at Bell Labs, he also had visiting faculty positions at IIT Delhi and Columbia University.[3] In 1996 he became an associate professor at Cornell University;[3] he then left academia in 1999 to co-found Ensim Corporation.[4] In 2003, he joined the faculty at the University of Waterloo, where he held a Canada Research Chair in Tetherless Computing from 2004 to 2014 and a Cisco Systems Chair in Smart Grid from 2012 to 2017.[5]

He is the inventor, along with his students at the University of Waterloo, of KioskNet, a system for providing internet access in impoverished countries.[6] He has been co-director of the Information Systems and Science for Energy (ISS4E) Laboratory at the University of Waterloo since 2010. [7]

Academic works and affiliations[edit]

Keshav is the author of a textbook on computer networks, An Engineering Approach to Computer Networking.[8] [9] He also wrote "Mathematical Foundations of Computer Networking" in 2012.[10]

Keshav was the Editor of Computer Communication Review from 2008 to 2013 [11] and the Chair of ACM SIGCOMM from 2013 to 2017[12].
