Core Team

The core team of the OpenINTEL project consists of the following people (in alphabetical order):

Anna Sperotto
Anna is one of the project's founders. Over the years, she has procured various sources of research funding to support PhD and postdoctoral research projects that use OpenINTEL data. Anna also supervises PhD students that work with OpenINTEL data for their research.
Mattijs Jonker
Mattijs is one of the project's founders and is OpenINTEL's data architect. He drives innovation in data processing and sharing towards new measurement, research and teaching opportunities. Mattijs also designed and established the project's compute infrastructure and manages the primary funding program.
Roland van Rijswijk-Deij
Roland is one of the project's founders. He designed the measurement architecture of OpenINTEL and implemented its flagship forward and reverse DNS measurements. Next to this, Roland has secured funding over the years to sustain the project's hardware and has a managing role in the team.

Key Contributors

We thank the following people for their key contributions to the OpenINTEL project:

Alberto Dainotti
Alberto is a senior research scientist at the Center for Applied Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA) at the University of California San Diego. He initiated the collaboration between the OpenINTEL project and CAIDA and is responsible for the MADDVIPR project on the US side of the collaboration.

Alistair King
Alistair works at the Center for Applied Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA) at the University of California, San Diego. Alistair contributes to improving the operations of the OpenINTEL measurement cluster, and provides insight on new analysis methods for OpenINTEL data, other than Hadoop. Alistair also helps ensure OpenINTEL is safely replicated at CAIDA.

Cristian Hesselman
Cristian directs SIDN Labs, the research team of the .nl registry, SIDN. He helps fund the OpenINTEL Hadoop cluster and acts as an ambassador for the project, for instance towards other ccTLD operators. In addition to this, Cristian is the one who originally came up with the name 'OpenINTEL'.

Jeroen van Ingen-Schenau
Jeroen works in the Library, ICT Services and Archive (LISA) department at the University of Twente where he is a network specialist. Jeroen ensures that OpenINTEL has the network resources it needs to perform measurements and analysis on the Hadoop cluster.

Maarten Wullink
Maarten is a member of the SIDN Labs research team at SIDN, the registry for .nl. OpenINTEL benefited from Maarten's extensive expertise in operating Hadoop clusters. He helped write the hardware specifications for our cluster nodes as well as with the installation of the cluster and getting us started using it.
Olivier van der Toorn
Olivier performed his doctoral research at the UT using OpenINTEL data. During this time, he took care of monitoring the OpenINTEL measurement infrastructure. When a measurement stalled, he was the first to know. Additionally, Olivier was closely involved in maintaining the infrastructure.

Paul Dekkers
Paul works for SURF, the National Research and Education Network in The Netherlands, where he is part of the Networking Department. Paul helps with his OpenStack expertise and has installed and configured the OpenINTEL measurement cluster.
