Professor Durairajan Receives NSF CRII Grant

The NSF Computer and Information Science and Engineering Research Initiation Initiative (CRII) Grant supports independent research in computer and information science. By recognizing the fundamental importance of establishing research independence, this program hopes to promote the growth and development of future generations of scientists and engineers dedicating their lives to advancing research and education in computer and information science.

Professor Durairajan’s winning proposal seeks to develop a deeper understanding of the delay characteristics of the Internet, specifically tackling the problem of how to ‘de-noise’ Internet delay measurements. The first thrust of this project will develop methods to identify noisy data, while the second thrust will develop methods to remove noise and repair measurements in a automated and rapid fashion.
