Stefan Savage

Stefan Savage is part of the Systems & Networking and Security research groups at the University of California, San Diego. His interests are all over the map, ranging from the economics of e-crime, to characterizing availability, to automotive systems to routing protocols, data center virtualization and back again. He has very broad interests (i.e. "try me if you have a crazy idea").

Stefan got his undergrad degree in Applied History from CMU and his Ph.D. from the University of Washington (courtesy Brian Bershad and Tom Anderson). He was Co-founder and Chief Scientist at Asta Networks (now kaput), served on the Strategy Advisory Council of Rendition Networks (since acquired by OpsWare) and helped develop some of the technology used by Netsift (since acquired by Cisco). He does other consulting here and there.
