Lina Battestilli received her Ph.D. in Computer Science from NCSU in August 2005, her masters in Computer Networking in August 2002 also at NCSU and her BS in Electrical Engineering and Minor in Applied Mathematics from Kettering University in 1999.
Prior to joining North Carolina State University, she was a network research engineer at the Next Generation Computing Systems at IBM Research. She worked on the PowerEN Technology, a blur between general purpose and networking processors and hardware accelerators. She identifed and studied workloads at the edge of the network that required high-throughput and fast deep-packet processing.
SInce joining NCSU in 2012, her research interests have been in innovation of Computer Science Education, effective ways of teaching Computer Science to non-majors and increasing the diversity of Computer Science students. She is also interested in Cloud Networking, Software Defined Networking, techniques and uses of Deep Packet Processing, advance scheduling of network resources, control & management plane design.
