    For contributions to network architecture, protocols and algorithms.

Professor Zhang's research interests lie in Internet, multimedia systems, resource management and quality of service. His work involves designing practical algorithms with sound, theoretical foundations and building prototype systems in real- life environments. For the last several years, his research has been on devising resource and traffic management algorithms for the Internet. His studies include packet scheduling, traffic characterization, admission control, routing, congestion control, reliable multicasting algorithms and real-time protocols. Recently, he has also been working on architecture and algorithms for implementing active value-added distributed services over the Internet, and customizable resource management algorithms for future services-oriented networks.
