Jason holds a MS in Computer Science from San Francisco State University. Jason is currently the Deputy of the Networking and Security Group, this involves handling the day-to-day operations and keeping the network flowing and security blocking. Jason has worked at Berkeley Lab since 1992, working on projects ranging from developing a parallel storage system to grid architecture in the Global Grid Forum. More recently, he worked on Bro, a network intrusion detection system developed by the Lab and the International Computer Science Institute. Jason has been busy scaling this to the 100G link he just help provision for NERSC. Jason was involved in the early quality-of-service (QoS) network tests with Van Jacobson back in 1994, when Jacobson was the head of the Network Research Group at the Lab and was known for his work on improving IP network performance and scaling. Jason has worked on some of the first gigabit test beds, including the Multidimensional Applications and Gigabit Internetwork Consortium (MAGIC) project in 1993, Bay Area Gigabit Network (BAGNet) in 1995 and National Transparent Optical Network (NTON) in 1997. He also worked with the Advanced Internet Research group at the University of Amsterdam on 10-Gbps transatlantic links in 2002.
