Hiring Ph.D. Students

Multiple Fully Funded Ph.D. Positions at the Next Generation Networking Lab Tennessee Technological University, Cookeville, TN, USA We are looking for motivated students to work on several next-generation networking topics. The students will study, design, build, and deploy next-generation network infrastructure and protocols for various use cases such as Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality(AR/VR), Domain Science applications with Big Data (e.g., Climate Science, Genomics, Physics), Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), 5G mobile networks, and more.

NSF REU Grant Award

Prof. Shannigrahi and Prof. Rogers have been awarded a National Science Foundation REU Grant to investigate the effects of an ScienceDMZ on a campus infrastructure. Link ScienceDMZ networks are widely deployed in US academic campuses. However, there is a lack of studies around how ScienceDMZs influence actual scientific data and workflows. This supplemental project will design and perform a measurement study that will quantify the improvements brought forward by the new science DMZ.

High Performance Error Free File Transfer

Prof. Shannigrahi in collaboration with Colorado State University has been awarded a National Science Foundation Grant to investigate errors that happen in the Internet. This measurement and error detection/correction study will not only improve our understanding of Internet errors but also improve large data transfers over the Internet. Link
