PhD student Andrew Ferguson was recently selected for a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship for his research in computer networks. He is advised by Rodrigo Fonseca. Andrew's proposed plan of research is to develop new methods for applications to collaboratively configure datacenter and enterprise networks. He is currently developing a technique for network traffic measurement using the IP Timestamps option, and presented initial results from the technique at the CoNEXT Student Workshop in November 2010.
NDSEG fellowships are highly competitive, with about 8% of the applicants receiving awards. They provide a stipend and full tuition and fees for three years.
