What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Computer network
  • The Internet
  • Operating system

His primary areas of investigation include Computer network, Distributed computing, The Internet, Network packet and Scalability. His work in Computer network covers topics such as Computer security which are related to areas like Network virtualization. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Distributed computing, focusing on Overlay network and, on occasion, Content addressable network and Network topology.

His study in The Internet is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Theoretical computer science and Server. His Network packet research incorporates elements of Scheduling, Mobile computing and Multicast. The Scalability study which covers Consistency that intersects with Sensor node and Routing.

His most cited work include:

  • OpenFlow: enabling innovation in campus networks (7096 citations)
  • A scalable content-addressable network (6477 citations)
  • Spark: cluster computing with working sets (3481 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Scott Shenker mainly focuses on Computer network, Distributed computing, The Internet, Network packet and Computer security. Static routing, Routing protocol, Routing, Network topology and Network congestion are the primary areas of interest in his Computer network study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Link-state routing protocol and Dynamic Source Routing.

Scott Shenker is interested in Multicast, which is a field of Distributed computing. His The Internet study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Service and Service. He regularly ties together related areas like Network architecture in his Network packet studies.
