I'm keen to supervise new research students who are interested in
improving the way we build Internet standards, transport protocols,
protocol stacks and their APIs, or compact routing algorithms.
If you're considering a PhD, then contact me
as early as possible so we can discuss whether I'm the right
supervisor for you, and help you prepare a research proposal in time
for the funding deadlines. Ideally, you should contact me in November
or December for a start the following September, since some types of
funding have deadlines in January/February. Details of our PhD
programme and application instructions can be found on
the School of Computing Science website.
Students are generally expected to have completed a Masters degree
prior to starting their PhD. This could be an MSci, a taught MSc,
or an MSc by Research. Our PhD programme is typically 3-4 years in
duration, and there are various sources of funding available.
I'm currently supervising Mihail Yanev, Vivian Band, Charles Varley,
Yuting Wan, and Ivan Nikitin for their PhD,
and I've supervised, or co-supervised, the following completed PhD students:
Deployable Transport Services for Low Latency Multimedia Applications,
PhD thesis, University of Glasgow, August 2019.
A Distributed, Compact Routing Protocol for the Internet,
PhD thesis, University of Glasgow, April 2016.
NetCode: An XOR-based Warning Dissemination Scheme for Vehicular Wireless Networks,
PhD thesis, University of Glasgow, January 2016.
Understanding the Performance of Internet Video over Residential Networks,
PhD thesis, University of Glasgow, October 2012.
Stephen D. Strowes,
Compact Routing for the Future Internet,
PhD thesis, University of Glasgow, February 2012.
I also supervised the following students for the degree of MSc by
Approaches to Adaptive Bitrate Video Streaming,
MSc thesis, University of Glasgow, March 2014.
Live Migration of User Environments Across Wide Area Networks,
MSc thesis, University of Glasgow, October 2008.
Congestion Control for Video-conferencing Applications,
MSc thesis, University of Glasgow, December 2006.
I'm grateful for support from the UK EPSRC, the European Commission,
the US National Science Foundation, DARPA, SICSA, Cisco, Ericsson,
Huawei, Rakuten Mobile, and others, for funding my students and
other research activities.
