Two Leading Authorities on Internet Architecture Join Advisory Board
Updated: Jul 8, 2020
Compira Labs is delighted to welcome Professors Brighten Godfrey and Scott Shenker to our advisory board.
Scott is a well-known authority on computer science and Internet architecture. He currently serves as chief scientist at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI), and as a professor of Computer Science at UC Berkeley. He previously co-founded Nicira (acquired by VMware for $1.26 billion) and Databricks. Among various prestigious awards, he has received both the SIGCOMM and IEEE Internet awards.
Brighten is an associate professor of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and was co-founder and CTO of network verification pioneer Veriflow until its acquisition by VMware. He is a recipient of the ACM SIGCOMM Rising Star Award and the Sloan Research Fellowship. Brighten brings a vast background of research into network architecture and Internet protocols, and a wealth of experience in computer science and tech innovation. Brighten was a co-author with Michael Schapira, Compira Labs co-founder and chief scientist, on ground-breaking research on Internet Congestion Control.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Scott and Brighten to the Compira Labs advisory board,” Schapira commented. “Having two visionary computer scientists like Scott and Brighten on our team is extremely exciting. I know that they’re going to bring a great deal of value to Compira’s solution, and it’s going to be wonderful to work with both of them again.”
Together, Brighten and Scott will be applying their experience and knowledge to the technical challenges of last mile streaming video delivery. The whole Compira Labs team is excited to have Brighten and Scott on-board helping to make the Compira Labs vision a reality.
