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 and network autoconfiguration. 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 in data center environments, particularly for big data systems, as well as in LAN environments. I received an M.S. in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Michigan in April 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.
