Reza Rejaie, assistant professor in Computer and Information Science, was named a recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER awards for 2005.

Prof. Rejaie will use the projected five-year grant to develop scalable and adaptive techniques for audio/video streaming in Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems over the Internet. This research enables an average Internet user to stream video to any number of heterogeneous and dynamic receivers without any special support from the network, e.g. an average user can manage its own TV-like channel over the internet. This work also sheds light on several fundamental challenges in distributed resource management for large scale, heterogeneous and dynamic P2P systems.

The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a highly competitive program that recognizes and supports the early career-development activities of teacher-scholars who are most likely to become academic leaders of the 21st century. Dr. Rejaie's award is the first NSF CAREER award in the area of Computer Networking ever received in the state of Oregon.

Dr. Rejaie joined the Department of Computer and Information Science in September 2002 as an Assistant Professor. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in computer science from the University of Southern California(USC) in 1996 and 1999 respectively. He completed his B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering at Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 1991. His research interests include multimedia networking, network measurement.
