Research Interests 

Qiu's research interests include wireless network management, content distribution, network measurement, and networking applications.

I am currently an Associate Professor in Computer Science Department at University of Texas at Austin. I am also a member of the Wireless Networking and communications Group. My research interests are in Internet and wireless networking. I graduated with a Ph.D. from Computer Science department at Cornell University in 2001. I spent 2001 - 2004 as a researcher at Microsoft Research. I joined UT Austin in January 2005. My current research focuses on wireless network management and content distribution in mobile networks. I got NSF CAREER award in 2006. I have also worked on network measurement and tomography, overlay routing/multihoming, Web performance and content/event distribution, TCP, active queue management, and congestion control, Packet classification and security, and IP telephony.
