Biography

Prof Darryl Veitch completed a Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree at Monash University, Australia in 1985. His PhD is in mathematics from the University of Cambridge, England, graduating in 1990. In 1991 he joined the research laboratories of Telstra in Melbourne where he became interested in long-range dependence of tele-traffic.

He spent a year at the CNET of France Telecom in Paris and then held visiting positions at the KTH in Stockholm, INRIA Sophia-Antipolis in France, and Bellcore in New Jersey, before returning to academia at RMIT, Melbourne. In 2000 he then joined the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at The University of Melbourne where he directed the EMULab, an Ericsson funded networking research group. He is now a Professorial Research Fellow in the Research Centre for Ultra-Broadband Information Networks (CUBIN) in the EEE department. 

His research interests include the statistical and dynamic nature of Internet traffic, parameter estimation problems and queuing theory for traffic processes, the theory and practice of active measurement, network tomography, traffic sampling strategies, and clock synchronisation over the Internet (the RADclock project). In 2005 he Co-Chaired the ACM Internet Measurement Conference and brought it to Melbourne in 2010 as local arrangements chair. He is a Fellow of the IEEE.
