Hi there!

I’m Esteban Carisimo, a Postdoctoral Researcher at AquaLab, a group at the Department of Computer Science of Northwestern University. My research focuses on diverse aspects of the Internet topology, including IXPs, CDNs, transit diversity, network congestion with also interdisciplinary approaches to these topics. Prior to joining Northwestern, I obtained Doctoral (2020) and Engineering (2014) degrees from Universidad de Buenos Aires, where I was also appointed as Adjunct Professor of the Department of Computer Science of the School of Engineering between 2020 and 2021.
