Greg O'Shea is a Research Software Development Engineer in the Systems and Networking group at Microsoft Research, Cambridge, working on the implementation and evaluation of experimental networked systems.
Notable projects include:
- CamCube: a key-based cluster for the data centre based on a 3D torus of directly connected PC servers;
- Broadside: a peer-to-peer system for content discovery and dissemination over ad-hoc WiFi connections between devices in passing vehicles;
- Virtual Ring Routing: a DHT-inspired wireless mesh routing protocol running on an indoor test-bed believed, at the time, to be the largest of its kind in the world;
- Mobile IPv6: an implementation of the IETF Mobile IPv6 protocol (RFC3005,RFC3006) for WindowsXP and Windows CE 4.2 (limited availability circa 2004-2005).
Previously Greg was a manager in the University Relations team, and before that a Principal consultant with Microsoft Ltd. His PhD from the University of London was in aspects of operating system security.
