PhD Research Internship
I am doing my PhD Research internship between August 16th, 2010 - April 15th, 2011, at Technische Universiteit Delft (TU Delft) in Netherlands, working as part of the Parallel and Distributed Systems Group (PDS Group), under the supervision of Prof. Johan Pouwelse.
The following research reports are part of the PhD program:
- Peer-to-peer strategies for stimulating resource sharing
- Presented on 23.12.2010 | show abstract | presentation
With the increasing demand of storing and accessing more data in the world, the need for efficient strategies for sharing the information between multiple entities has become a real challenge for the research community. This report presents both the existing and still-under-development strategies that facilitate resource sharing in Peer-to-Peer systems, together with the major challenges that shaped their evolution. As part of the research for detecting and improving peer-behavior using intelligent strategies, the report also presents author's work on creating a peer-tracking engine to be used for evaluating new strategies.
- Modeling intelligent behavior in peer-to-peer systems
- Presented on 03.08.2011 | show abstract | presentation
The ever-increasing use of Peer-to-Peer networks for resource sharing has led researchers to explore multiple methods for improving the efficiency of the underlying protocol mechanisms. Developing efficient models for improved swarm interactions requires a thorough analysis of the current limitations and available extension possibilities. This report presents the fundamentals of building intelligent strategies based on resource management in Peer-to-Peer networks and context-aware peer classification. The strategies for influencing peer behaviour can be improved by using the solutions presented by the author as part of the report. The solutions are evaluated both from the complexity point of view and experimentally, allowing an immediate evaluation of the impact and benefits of implementing this research in real-world scenarios.
