Section Leader, CS Bridge (June 24, 2019 - July 4, 2019)
A non-profit international program that offers a two-week, intensive residential summer course for 16 and 17 year old high school students.
The course is based on Stanford’s CS106A Programming Methodology (in Java) course.
My duty was to help students with their coding projects during lab hours and conduct discussion sections where we review and discuss topics covered in lectures.
Current Research and Scholarly Interests
There are 2 main aspects of network management:
- Collecting useful and enough amount of information from the network is essential for modern, data-centric decision processes to work well.
Frameworks such as In-band Network Telemetry could be utilized to collect precise information on every single packet in the network.
- Modern data science methodologies allow engineers to infer about the state of the network.
Naturally, the next step is to design tailored control algorithms that would utilize available resources the best.
Potential methods include, but not limited to, machine learning algorithms and control theory.
