Picture of Professor Zhi-Li ZhangThe National Science Foundation has granted Professor Zhi-Li Zhang over two million dollars to pursue a project on Complex Interactions in the Content Distribution Ecosystem. Over the course of four years, the generous grant of over 2.7 million will be divided among colleagues at the University of Minnesota and University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

In this ambitious project, Zhang, along with collaborators Professors Don Towsley, Ramesh Sitaraman, and Kris Hollot of UMASS, will work to model, understand, and optimize online content distribution across large interconnected online systems. The scope of the project is far-reaching - touching on infrastructure that affects everything from Content Providers like Google and Facebook to Distribution Networks and Internet Service providers. If successful, the project will have economic benefits for the entire content distribution ecosystem, and thus, the Internet at large.
