Deborah Estrin is Associate Dean and Professor of Computer Science at Cornell Tech in New York City and a Professor of Public Health at Weill Cornell Medical College. She is founder of the Health Tech Hub and directs the Small Data Lab at Cornell Tech, which develops new personal data APIs and applications for individuals to harvest the small data traces they generate daily. Estrin is also co-founder of the non-profit startup, Open mHealth.
Previously, Estrin was on the UCLA faculty where she was the Founding Director of the NSF Center for Embedded Networked Sensing (CENS), pioneering the development of mobile and wireless systems to collect and analyze real time data about the physical world and the people who occupy it.
This course focuses on architectural principles of Internet architecture; network protocol mechanisms (MAC, Transport, Routing, SDN); design principles (modularity, scalability, performance, end-to-end); how the Internet works and is used today; mobile technologies (communication, sensing, location, cloud interaction, wearables); and elements of mobile systems design and implementation. It is appropriate for graduate students who have no or limited networking knowledge. Note that there is project work involving both software development and some data analysis.
