Eric Newberry

Ph.D. Student in Computer Science



I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at UCLA. I am advised by Prof. Lixia Zhang in the Internet Research Laboratory.

My research focuses on edge computing, particularly how to decrease edge service dependency on the cloud. I seek to apply the Named Data Networking (NDN) information-centric networking (ICN) architecture in these areas.

I received a B.S. (Honors) in Computer Science from the University of Arizona in May 2018. During my undergraduate years, I was an Undergraduate Research Assistant in the Network Research Laboratory and was advised by Prof. Beichuan Zhang. My research during this time focused on improving network performance through in-network caching, particularly for big data systems and LAN environments. I will receive an M.S. in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Michigan in May 2020.

I also previously worked on NDN research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and was supervised by Dr. Lotfi Benmohamed. During this time, I contributed to the development of a standardized framework to perform network measurements in NDN environments.
