Prior to joining the SEI, Plakosh was the lead software engineer for the Systems Engineering Department at the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWCDD). Plakosh has over 15 years of software development experience in defense, research and industry. Plakosh's principal areas of expertise include; real-time distributed systems, network communications and protocols, systems engineering, real-time 2D and 3D graphics, and Unix OS internals. Much of Plakosh's recent experience has been redesigning legacy-distributed systems to use the latest distributed communication technologies.
