PhD Thesis Defense: Rigorous Evaluation of Performance and Policy Impacts of Transport Protocols and In-Network Devices

Speaker: Arash Molavi Kakhki, PhD Candidate, College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern University

This thesis posits that an effective way to address these issues is to create frameworks and tools for rigorous evaluation of approaches for optimizing network performance. By building such tools, we can detect instances of inconsistency between intended and actual network behaviors, diagnose the root causes, and help fix them.

Network Science Institute: The Role of Attention in Creating and Retrieving Memories

Speaker: J. Benjamin Hutchinson, Assistant Professor of Psychology, College of Science at Northeastern University

In this talk, Professor Hutchinson will present two lines of research that seek to better understand this bidirectional relationship. In particular, he will describe findings from a series of functional neuroimaging studies designed to explore how the brain implements both attention during remembering and memory during ongoing experience.

Network Science Institute: Clustering Spectrum of Hierarchical Scale-Free Networks

Speaker: Johan van Leewaarden, Professor of Mathematics at Eindhoven University of Technology

Join us as we learn about how real-world networks often have power-law degrees and scale-free properties such as ultra-small distances and ultra-fast information spreading.
