About Myself

John W. Lockwood designs and implements networking systems in reconfigurable hardware. He is the founder and CEO of Algo-Logic Systems--a company that specializes in implementing networking algorithms in hardware. Algo-Logic designs high-performance network hardware and provides corporate training for companies interested in using their engineering own team to further enhance their platform.

Prior to starting Algo-Logic in September of 2009, Lockwood managed the NetFPGA program at Stanford University as a Consulting Associate Professor. In this role in the Department of Electrical Engineering, he grew of worldwide deployment of NetFPGA hardware from 10 to 1,021 units. Lockwood worked with vendors to specify open reference systems, he managed the relationships with the corporate sponsors, and taught 11 NetFPGA workshops and tutorials around the world. These worldwide tutorials including the the NetFPGA Developer Workshop, the week-long summer camp, Hot Interconnects tutorial at Stanford University; the NetFPGA SIGCOMM tutorial; and international tutorials in U.K., Europe, India, China, and Australia.

Prior to joining Stanford in January of 2007, Lockwood led the Reconfigurable Network Group at Washington University in St. Louis. At WashU, He was a tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. While at WashU, Lockwood and his research group developed the Field programmable Port Extender (FPX) to enable rapid prototype of extensible network modules in Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology.

Dr. Lockwood has worked in industry for AT&T Bell Laboratories, IBM, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA). He served as a co-founder of Global Velocity, a networking startup company focused on high-speed data security. Dr. Lockwood earned his MS, BS, and PhD degrees from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois.

Dr. Lockwood has published over 100 papers in journals and technical conferences that describe technologies for providing extensible network services, Quality of Service (QoS), and security in high-speed computer networks and wireless LANs. Professor Lockwood has served as the principal investigator on grants from the National Science Foundation, Xilinx, Altera, Agilent Technologies, Nortel Networks, Rockwell Collins, and Boeing. Dr. Lockwood has served as both a program chair and general chair for the Hot Interconnects conference and the International Conference on Microelectronic Systems Education (MSE). He has served on the technical program committee for International Working Conference on Active Networks (IWAN), International Symposium on Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA), and the IEEE Symposium on Field-Programmable Custom Computing Machines (FCCM). He has served as a reviewer for the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas of Communication (JSAC), IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration Systems (TVLSI), ACM Transactions on Embedded Systems (TECS), ACM SIGMETRICS, Computer Networks Journal, and Globecom. He is a member of IEEE, ACM, Tau Beta Pi, and Eta Kappa Nu.
