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.
Fall 2012, I rejoined STARS as a Corps leader. My duties included assisting faculty members with grant proposals
and managing the 30 members and 12 projects we are conducting that year.
Along with my leading NCSU STARS, I coordinated
Students in Programming, Robotics and Computer Science (SPARCS) project with Durham Nativity School.
