Nadig presented the paper, “An Application-Aware, Predictive and Intelligent Load Balancing Solution for Data-Intensive Science,” in the conference’s Fault Tolerance and Survivability track. The paper was co-authored by computer science and engineering professor Byrav Ramamurthy and Holland Computing Center director David Swanson. 

Nadig is currently working on Software Defined Networks (SDN) at the Networks Research Group, under the supervision of Ramamurthy. His research interests include network innovation, security, transport issues, and applicability to large-scale network architectures. He is currently working as a research assistant on the NSF-funded project, “Intelligent Optical Networks using Virtualization and Software-Defined Control.” He was also selected as a recipient of a 2019-20 Milton Mohr Graduate Fellowship.

IEEE INFOCOM is a top ranked conference on networking in the research community. It is a major conference venue for researchers to present and exchange significant and innovative contributions and ideas in the field of networking and closely related areas.

Congratulations to Deepak Nadig on this outstanding achievement!
