Scott Shenker spent his academic youth studying theoretical physics but soon gave up chaos theory for computer science. Continuing to display a remarkably short attention span, his research over the years has wandered from performance modeling and networking to game theory and economics. Unable to focus on any single topic, his current research projects include software-defined networking, network function virtualization, data analytics, and Internet architecture. Unable to hold a steady job, he currently splits his time between the U. C. Berkeley Computer Science Department and the International Computer Science Institute.

I'm a 3rd year CS PhD student advised by Scott Shenker. I am interested in applied systems research, particularly in the context of warehouse-scale computers (looking for motivated undergrads who want to do research in this area). I am a good hombre from Mexico.

I'm a 2nd year graduate student advised by Scott Shenker. Things I like include systems, compilers, sleep, and Python.

Hey everyone! I'm a Master's student from Saratoga, CA. I'm advised by Pieter Abbeel and focus in Deep RL and transfer learning, but this is my second semester teaching 168 since I've enjoyed this class a lot! In my free time, I like following sports (basketball, football), playing video games (CS:GO), blowing more money on PC upgrades, and competing in archery.

Hello! I'm a fourth year EECS and Music major. I grew up in upstate New York and finished high school in Kentucky. On campus, you'll see me playing violin in the UC Berkeley Symphony. My favorite restaurant was Eatsa, until it closed. Networks are awesome, and so is this class. Looking forward to meeting all of you!

Hey! I'm a 4th year EECS student from the Bay Area. In my free time, I like to play basketball, eat ALL of the food (We can trade our favorite restaurants!), and play video games (I'm playing Witcher 3 right now). I look forward to working with all of you!

What's up everyone? I'm an EECS Masters student hailing from the Great White North where the most political topic is who's going to win the Stanley Cup this year - always Maple Leafs. My favourite academic topics are Security, Privacy, and Networking (duuh) but favourite everyday topics involve deep conversations about traveling, sports, and how much cheese is too much cheese (spoiler - the limit does not exist). I'm super stoked for this semester and look forward to many off topic discussions!

Hey! I’m a fourth year computer science major from Chicago-ish. As far as computer science goes, I’ve found that I’m at least a little bit interested in pretty much everything. My hobbies include browsing Wikipedia, cooking, baking bread, eating, losing to people at chess, and starting side projects (but rarely finishing them) — one time I wrote a NES emulator!

I was born in Mexico, but I've now lived in San Diego and then Berkeley for over half my life, so I'm firmly American now (as my cousins like to rag on me about). I'm a fourth year EECS student here at Berkeley, and when I'm not TAing, studying, or manning the Peer Advisor desk at ESS, I'm probably procrastinating on one of the three by reading fiction (current one is Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb) or playing video games (currently finishing off Fire Emblem Fates). Please do recommend books and/or games!

Hello! I am a third year EECS student from San Diego, CA. I'm interested in networking and wireless communications (I have a HAM license which I rarely use). I love traveling--I spent last Spring bouncing around Europe while studying at Lund University in Sweden. I am an avid photographer, yet am extremely lazy with editing and posting photos.

Heya! I'm a 4th year CS major born and raised in the Bay Area. Other than scrolling through memes and watching endless amounts of YouTube, I spend my time honing my internal dog radar, yelling at friends over board games, and pretending I know how to bake. If you see me on campus and I don't say hi, I promise I'm not ignoring you; I'm just still invested in Pokemon Go.

I'm a senior studying Computer Science. I love networks because they teach us how to design simple systems that can adapt to changing requirements in the future. I like to Ski and Mountain Bike in my free time!

Hey everyone! I'm a 3rd year EECS major from Virginia. My academic interests include networking, theory, and AI! In my nonexistent free time, I like to draw, play Clash Royale, and watch Netflix.

Hi! I'm a 3rd year CS major from the bay. I'm looking forwards to hopefully showing y'all why I loved this class! In my free time you might catch me playing melee, rock climbing, or singing. Also cat is best.

Hi! I’m a fourth year CS major from Irvine, CA! My interests include all forms of potatoes (including corgis), coffee, and computer graphics. I’m deeply passionate about mental health advocation and STEM outreach. Looking forward to a great semester, and (hopefully) sharing how cool networking can be!

Hi, I am a 3rd year EECS student in the Network Systems lab. I'm broadly interested in distributed and networked systems, along with probability and optimization. I love to bake way too much food than I could possibly (or rather safely) eat.
