Chuanxiong Guo

I am a SENIOR RESEARCHER in the Wireless and Networking Group at Microsoft Research Asia . I received a Ph.D. degree in communications and information systems from Nanjing Institute of Communications Engineering.

My research interests lie in the field of networking, encompassing networked systems design, implementation, and analysis, data center networking (DCN), novel network applications, and networking support in operating systems and cloud computing. I am interested in finding simple yet deep and elegant solutions to real-world networking and systems problems. Currently I am working on Data Center Networking (DCN), data centric networking, and distributed computing.

More details about me: bio and CV.

Journal version appeared in IEEE/ACM trans. Networking, vol. 12, no. 6, pp. 1144-1155, Dec. 2004. [pdf] 
SRR placed the seeds for G-3 in IEEE Infocom 2008, and SRR+ and SRR# in IEEE Infocom 2009. SRR, G-3, SRR+, and SRR# form a full spectrum of simple fair queueing packet schedulers that provide different delay and space and time complexity tradeoffs.

I am currently recruiting research interns. Requirements are: (1) ability to solve (and abstract) problems (e.g., good at math); (2) programming ability (to turn things into real); (3) self-motivated. If you are interested, please contact me via email.
