The NC State Department of Computer Science is pleased to announce that professor Dr. Injong Rhee has received a Google Research Award totaling $65,532. The award will support his research proposal titled “Experimental Evaluation of Increasing TCP Initial Congestion Window.”  Arvind Jain will serve as Dr. Rhee’s liaison at Google during the time of the project.
The purpose of the Google Research Awards program is to facilitate more interaction between Google and academia and also nurture stronger relations and partnerships with universities, and to identify and support world-class, full-time faculty pursuing research in areas of mutual interest. Participants in the awards program have a primary contact at Google through whom they discuss research directions, provide progress updates, engage in knowledge transfer, etc. 
The intent of the awards is to support academic research aimed at improving information access. Awards through the program are typically for one year in the range of $10K-$150K.
