My PhD research studies methods to accelerate TCP startup performance with the aim to improve user web browsing experience. The research goals are:

  1. Improve TCP robustness against non-congestion related packet losses occurring during the startup phase.
  2. Make TCP more tolerant of evolutions occurring in network entities that cause interfering with connection establishment packets.
  3. Reduce latency of web transactions over the Internet including lossy and long-delay paths.


A Loss-Robust TCP Congestion Control Algorithm for Faster Web Response Time On Lossy and Long Delay Internet Paths

Funding: Funded by my employers - Usmanu Dan Fodiyo University, Sokoto, Nigeria.

Expected thesis submission date: December 2013
