Doug's technical interests include network signaling as well as network security and reliability. He is also interested in the interaction of federal policy and network technology. His efforts at Level 3 focused on optimizing network service architectures, particularly in the area of securing IP-based signaling. His responsibilities at the FCC included all Internet related issues, advanced services, cable open access and communications merger proceedings.

Doug is a senior member of the IEEE, as well as a member of the ACM and the Internet Society. After leaving the FCC, he served as the Chair of the Network Reliability and Interoperability Council steering committee, an FCC federal advisory committee that focuses on network reliability, wire line spectral integrity and Internet peering. Doug also served on the Technical Advisory Council of the FCC, focusing on communication related disabilities issues. He presently serves on the program committee for the Telecommunication Policy Research Conference (TPRC). Doug completed a PhD at the University of Pittsburgh, where his dissertation examined emerging IP signaling and control architectures.
