Liang Zhang is a computer science researcher at Fermilab Network Research Group. His research interests lie in Internet, network protocols, resource management and high performance software architecture. His work involves designing practical algorithms and building prototype systems in real-life environments. For the last two years, his research has been on devising software architecture and algorithms for implementing bulk data transfer over the Internet. His studies include multicore computing, multitask scheduling, routing, congestion control, reliable multicasting algorithms and real-time protocols. Recently, he has also been studying architecture and algorithms of Software Defined Networking (SDN) for implementing active value-added distributed services over the Internet.
Liang Zhang received his Ph.D. from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2004, majored in Networking. He worked at Bell Labs, Northwestern University and Harris Corporation before joining Fermilab in 2013.
