Biography

IEEE IWQoS. He has edited a book "Self-Similar Network Traffic and Performance Evaluation" (co-editor: Walter Willinger) published by Wiley-Interscience, 2000. His thesis, entitled "Ergodicity and Mixing Rate of One-Dimensional Cellular
Automata" (advisor: Peter Gacs), was on a problem in probability
theory going back to von Neumann, with applications to fault-tolerance
and reliability in large scale systems such as the Internet. Dr. Park
was a Presidential University Fellow at Boston University, is a
recipient of the NSF CAREER Award, a Fellow-at-Large of the Santa
Fe Institute, has served on several international program committees
and panels, and is a member of ACM and IEEE. He is on the
editorial boards of Computer Networks and IEEE Communications Letters.
In 2001, he organized an SFI/NSF Workshop titled "The Internet as a
Large-Scale Complex System" (co-chair: Walter Willinger), at the
Santa Fe Institute, and a SPIE Conference titled "Scalability and
Traffic Control in IP Networks" (co-chair: Sonia Fahmy) held at the
Colorado Convention Center in Denver.
