Doctoral student in Networked Systems – Programmable Internet Networks

Kungliga Tekniska högskolan,

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Project description

Third-cycle subject: Information and Communication Technology

Communication networks are crucial to human society. The most notable network – the Internet – offers a plethora of services to its users and it is poised to become more pervasive in the near future. Yet, the heterogeneous set of requirements posed by the emerging services stands as a huge challenge for the Internet community for two main reasons:

i) Internet networks have been extremely hard to adapt to the emerging use cases for decades and

ii) end-to-end Internet connectivity entails forwarding packets across multiple networks that are owned by completely independent organizations with possibly contrasting goals.

The goal of this Ph.D. position is to explore the most recent networking paradigms and to build highly innovative programmable networks that better suit the emerging modern-day requirements for the Internet. This task entails devising inter- and intra-domain solutions that conciliate the needs of the different networking organizations, networking vendors, Internet application services, Cloud datacenters, and beyond. Examples include leveraging the emerging network programming abstractions (e.g., SDN, P4), trends (Machine Learning, blockchain technology), and congestion control schemes to improve the performance, security, robustness, and reliability of today’s Internet-wide connectivity.
