Interested in joining NDSL?
We are looking for ambitious graduate students interested in computer
systems and/or networking research. Our recent research topics include
(but are not limited to) high-speed network packet processing,
scalable/reusable networking stacks for end-host or middlebox systems,
systems support for deep learning, modular firmware for storage
devices, etc. If you have any crazy idea in any of these topics (or
anything related to computer/networking software systems), please drop
me a line. I will be happy to discuss with you.
Carrying out research in computer systems requires a little bit of
background in computing/networking. The fastest way to obtain the
background is to take related courses in the EE or CS department. An
average student in my lab is supposed to have taken these courses (or
equivalent CS courses) in the school of EE at KAIST. I strongly
encourage you to take the following courses if you consider joining
- EE209 Programming structures for EE
- EE205 Data structure and algorithms for EE
- EE323 Computer networks
- EE324 Network programming
- EE415 Operating systems and system programming for EE
- Courses on computer architecture, compilers, computer security,
databases, system programming, and programming languages also help.
We do not consider the undergraduate major as long as he/she meets the
pre-requisites above. Typical students in NSDL have chosen EE or CS as
their undergraduate major, but feel free to contact me if you have
comparable background in the related field.
Please do not send a spam
Many students send a generic email (that looks to be delivered) to
every professor in our department. I highly doubt if such a strategy
would work well, and I generally do not respond to any of these
emails. If you are interested in NDSL, please describe your specific
interest, and your background in the related topics.
