Research Students

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:

I also supervised the following students for the degree of MSc by Research:

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.
