CSE graduate student Sanae Rosen, working with Prof. Z. Morley Mao in the RobustNet Research Group, has been selected for the Margaret Ayers Host Award by the Rackham School of Graduate Studies at the University of Michigan.
Sanae is interested in mobile device networking, and in particular measuring factors affecting network performance, improving performance and reducing data consumption, and helping devices and applications automatically adjust to changing network conditions. One recent project has involved shifting traffic from cellular to WiFi networks by predicting future network requests and fetching data hours in advance. Another recent project has been on understanding the effects of carrier-specific radio configuration parameters on user-perceived performance using crowdsourced measurements.
