Ravi Sundaram joined Khoury College of Computer Sciences in 2003 after working as director of engineering at Akamai Technologies, where he played a critical role in the buildout of the world’s leading content delivery network. There he established the mapping group responsible for directing over 10 billion browser requests per day to the optimal Akamai server.

Sundaram is primarily interested in network performance and approximation algorithms for the design and efficient utilization of networks. He enjoys devising efficient schemes for improving the performance of network-based applications and validating their use through innovative systems implementations. He is also interested in network security and game theoretic aspects of network usage. He has previously worked in complexity theory and combinatorics.
