John W. Lockwood designs and implements networking systems in reconfigurable hardware. In September of 2009, he became the CEO at Algo-Logic Systems. Previously, he had managed the NetFPGA program in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University.
Prior to joining Stanford in January of 2007, Lockwood led the Reconfigurable Network Group in the Applied Research Laboratory at Washington University in St. Louis. 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.
As an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science, Lockwood has served as the principle investigator on grants from the National Science Foundation, Xilinx, Altera, Nortel Networks, Global Velocity, Rockwell Collins, SAIC, and Boeing. He has published over 75 major papers in journals and technical conferences that describe technologies for providing extensible network services, Quality of Service (QoS), and security in wireless LANs and in high-speed networks.
John has worked for AT&T Bell Laboratories, IBM, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA). John served as a co-founder and chief scientist of Global Velocity, a networking startup company focused on high-speed data security, but he no longer works with that company.
