Fabricio Mazzola

UFRGS PhD 2019-…


“I am Ph.D. student at the Informatics Institute of UFRGS - Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul. I am working under the supervision of Prof. Marinho Barcellos. I have a bachelor degree in Computer Science by UFRGS (2019).

My research interests are networked systems, mainly focusing on Internet measurements, Internet cartography, and network analytics. In the past, I have worked with Software Defined Networking (SDN) and data-center networks. I am currently investigating the main connectivity characteristics and evolution of the Brazilian IXP ecosystem, focusing on identifying, quantifying, and analyzing the adoption and impact of remote peerings in different IXPs over the country. My plans for future research include investigating ways to evolve the Internet cartography of peering interconnections leveraging the opportunities enabled by IXPs, increasing knowledge about network redundancy and coverage.”
