Hi I'm Roger, I was born in the thriving metropolis of Maffra in the Gippsland region of Victoria, Australia. I went to the University of Melbourne where I earned bachelors degrees in Electrical Engineering (1989) and Computer Science (1990). After finishing at Melbourne Uni, I worked for a while at the Telecom Australia Research Laboratories on packet video and ISDN related projects. In 1992 I moved to the states and MIT where I worked as a research assistant in the Media Lab's Entertainment and Information Systems group.
I've since finished my studies having earned a Master's in 1994, and a Ph.D. in March in 1998. Up until Jan 2004 I worked for Motorola in Chicago and then in Sydney at the Motorola Australian Research Centre where I established and led the Sydney Networks Research Lab. I now consult in the area of R&D commercialisation, should you wish to contact me please do so via one of the following means.

This is the research page I used to bookmark relevant web pages, RFCs, and Internet drafts whilst at the Media Lab.
In the meantime you can check out some preliminary results on the Scoped Hybrid ARQ with FEC (SHARQFEC) I've been developing as part of the Hierarchically Partitioned Reliable Transport Protocol (HPRTP) that I've been developing.
What can I say? Australia is one of the most awesome countries in the world. Awesome people, awesome sports (footy, cricket), awesome lifestyle,and the beaches have to be seen to be believed.
Music is huge in Australia, on any given night some 150 bands will be playing in Melbourne alone. Aussie bands are among the best in the world, two of my favourites are Crowded House and Midnight Oil.
