Calvin Ardi

University of Southern California


I am an nth year computer science PhD student working with Prof. John Heidemann in the ANT group.


I'm currently working on a framework for sharing network security data between multiple organizations for faster and more comprehensive incident response, with a goal of automation and future incident forecasting. This is a collaborative effort with USC/ISI, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and Colorado State U.

Other current work entails developing and evaluating content reuse detection techniques on web-scale datasets, evaluating availability of cloud services and systems, and securing personal cloud applications.

Interests include network protocols and analysis, data visualization, information security and privacy, social networking.

Previously, I worked on delay-tolerant networks; I continue to keep as up-to-date as I can (and maybe write some code).
