Greetings, my name is Robinson Udechukwu and I am a PhD candidate in Computer Science at North Carolina State
My research involves using emerging technologies, such as software-defined networking, to assist in the development
of system architecture and communication services. Currently, I am assisting Dr. Rudra Dutta
on a research project looking into choice-based cooperative network optimization approach for provisioning optical network resources to fulfill
network objectives. For more information, see
I have been an active member of NCSU STARS, a student-led group
which aims to broaden participation in computing, for three years of my undergraduate career.
I have since rejoined STARS (as of Fall 2012) as a Corps leader, where my duties consists in assisting faculty members with grant proposals
and managing the 30 members and 12 projects we are conducting this year.
Along with my leading NCSU STARS, I coordinate
Students in Programming, Robotics and Computer Science (SPARCS) project with Durham Nativity School.
Why go for a PhD?
carte blanche: Unrestricted power to act at one's own discretion
The Underlying Philosophy motivating all PhD students to push forward.
Research til your heart's content within an area of YOUR interest.
Ask questions until you have experts answering with "I don't know" and then dig until YOU have an answer.
Ultimately delivering new knowledge within your field of study
