Christopher Pluntke
PhD Student
I am a final year Ph.D. student at the Communications and Information Systems Research Group at UCL supervised my Miguel Rio and Damon Wischik. I am interested in mathematical modelling and applications of multipath resource allocation problems. In this context, I am working on routing and design for backbone and data centre networks as well as load-balancing on multiple interfaces on end-devices for saving energy or reliable streaming.
Currently I am a visiting student researcher at Stanford University working on the Insinc project (Incentives for Singapore's commuters) that aims to explore incentive mechanisms in societal networks.
I am writing up at the moment. Here's my progress:
