ISR alum Aaron Falk named chair of IRTF


ISR alum Aaron Falk has been named the new chair of the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF). IRTF is a confederation of researchers in academia and industry who coordinate research, foster collaboration, and exchange information on Internet research.


Falk is a computer scientist at the University of Southern California's Information Sciences Institute, where his latest research work is focused on the new XCP Internet protocol, aimed at easing Internet congestion.

He earned a MS in Systems Engineering in 1994. While here, along with Douglas Dillon, Ilya Faenson and William Stanton (Hughes Network Systems); and Professor John S. Baras (ECE/ISR), Narin Suphasindhu, Vivek Arora and Tim Kirkwood of CSHCN, Falk was one of the inventors and coders of the prototype system for DirecPC (now DirecWay), a system that delivers broadband Internet access via satellite.
