Dr. Liu is looking for highly motivated PhD students, who are interested in computer networking and would like to conduct high quality research. Teaching Assistants or Research Assistants with Highly Competitive Stipends are Available for Qualified Candidates. Please send your CV and transcripts directly to me. Exchange students or scholars are welcome as well.


Current Research interests

1. Named Data Network (NDN) routing scalability issues, applications over NDN

2. Global Forwarding Table Aggregation: can we develop a more efficient and easily deployable FIB aggregation algorithm?

3. FIB Caching: further reduce the FIB size with the assistance of Software Defined Network (SDN)
