Kevin Battle currently works for Excivity, Inc, a software development firm based in Chantilly, Virginia. His education is in Computer Science with a special focus on Computer Networking. Much of his professional experience has been focused on network administration and design. However, since starting his career he has greatly expanded his core skill set. These new areas include system administration, cybersecurity, the creation of enterprise architectures in Amazon Web Services, and the development of applications in a variety of programming languages.
Currently, he aspires to enhance his knowledge further in the realms of secure software development, development operations, and data science to ensure a well-rounded and dynamic field of expertise. Utilization of this breadth of skills will guarantee a reliable and flexible solution to any challenge he might encounter.
Software Engineer @ From October 2015 to Present (3 months) Technologist @ During his role as a Technologist, Kevin had the opportunity and privilege of participating in a variety of technological ventures.
The redesign of a small business network into a highly dynamic infrastructure that allowed for centralized authentication, secure remote access, dynamic networking, and the unofficial institution of a basic security policy.
Creation of scalable, fault tolerant architectures on AWS utilized by development teams and for core business functions.
The development of a distributed data enrichment pipeline using Apache Storm to create structured data to be queried via a web application that facilitated the analyses of several large data sets pulled from online sources.
Utilized agile development practices to modernize analytical processes and provide timely data extraction of large data sets for key government clients. Key successes resulted in the creation of expedient workflows enhancing the reliability and usability of tools essential to daily operations. From December 2013 to September 2015 (1 year 10 months) Senior Consultant @ Participated in several projects related to DOD initiatives including the Joint Information Environment (JIE) and the Mobile Device Strategy at DISA HQ.
Contributed to the design and installation of the DoD Mobility PMO pilot network within DISA HQ. This infrastructure was designed to support remote access for mobile devices and enterprise level Unified Communications (Cisco UC). It was utilized to support a small team of engineers conducting performance and functional testing of multiple multimedia mobile applications, including Cisco Jabber, Counterpath Bria, and Vidyo. Several client-ready deliverables were prepared detailing test results and analysis.
Thorough testing of several different mobile VPN solutions was performed with the intention of analyzing performance over a multitude of network conditions and mobile device combinations. This resulted in a performance analysis brief that influenced high-level design decisions within the Mobility PMO From August 2012 to December 2013 (1 year 5 months) Graduate Student @ As a graduate student, I focused on the kernel level development and troubleshooting initiatives of Loss-Tolerant Transmission Control Protocol (LT-TCP). This protocol was developed to improve Transport Layer protocol performance on lossy networks. The implementation of LT-TCP on which I worked is the result of a collaborative effort between MIT Lincoln Labs and the RPI Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering department.
I researched and optimized several categories of LT-TCP performance including channel coding, forward error correction, data acknowledgement, and retransmission. Performance analysis results were gathered to quantify performance gains. From August 2011 to July 2012 (1 year) Undergraduate Programming Mentor @ Worked as a Teaching Assistant for students in the Computer Science 1 Course. Helped students in learning basic programming concepts for their labs and homework From January 2011 to May 2011 (5 months) Computer Science Tutor @ Worked as Tutor for RPI's Advising and Learning Assistance Center.
Provided assistance on homework for students in the Computer Science 1, Computer Science 2, and Data Structures and Algorithms courses From September 2009 to December 2009 (4 months)
