Short bio

Pere Barlet-Ros received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in 2003 and 2008, respectively. He is currently an associate professor with the Computer Architecture Department and senior researcher with the Advanced Broadband Communications Center of the UPC. He is the President and co-founder of Talaia Networks, a UPC spin-off that commercializes cloud-based SaaS network visibility and security products. The company won the second prize for the best business plan among Catalan technology-based startups in 2013 (VALORTEC) and he was awarded as the best entrepreneur of the Barcelona School of Informatics in 2015 (Fiber Emprenedors). He was also a visiting researcher at Endace (New Zealand), Intel Research Cambridge (UK) and Intel Labs Berkeley (USA). For more that 10 years, his research has focused on the development of novel technologies for network monitoring, traffic classification, traffic analysis, anomaly detection and network security, which have been integrated in several open-source and commercial products, including Talaia, CoMo and SMARTxAC. He has been the Principal Investigator of 7 competitive research projects and advised 6 Ph.D. theses in the field of network measurements. He also published in the most relevant journals and conferences in his area of research, including the Proceedings of the IEEE, IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, IEEE Computer, ACM CoNEXT, ACM Internet Measurement Conference and USENIX Annual Technical Conference. He has recently been the General Chair of the Traffic Monitoring and Analysis Conference (TMA) in 2015 and is currently member of its Steering Committee.
