Alumnus Wins Prestigious NSF CAREER Award

Alumnus Dr. Lisong Xu (Ph.D. '02), an assistant professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, has received a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation valued at $400,000 for his proposal “Stochastic TCP Friendliness: Exploring the Design Space of TCP-Friendly Traffic Control in the Best-Effort Internet”.
These prestigious awards are provided by the NSF in support of the early career-development activities of those teacher-scholars who most effectively integrate research and education within the context of the mission of their organization. Such activities should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of integrated contributions to research and education.
While at NC State, Xu's academic co-advisors were Drs. Harry Perros and George Rouskas and his dissertation was entitled "Performance Analysis of Optical Burst Switched Networks".
Xu also worked with Drs. Injong Rhee and James Lester as a postdoc after his graduation.
