Science workflows for data intensive science are now routinely needing to address transferring of huge amount of data in the range of terabytes to petabytes. In this talk, I will discuss challenges we face with such large-scale flows and the impact on networking with potential opportunities for in-network computing and storage.


Deep Medhi is Program Director in the Computer & Network Systems (CNS) Division in the Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE) Directorate at the National Science Foundation (NSF). He manages networking research programs as well as several research infrastructure programs such as NSF Future Cloud, Mid-Scale Research Infrastructure, and Cloud Access.

He is on leave as Curators’ Distinguished Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) under the IPA program. He received B.Sc. in Mathematics from Cotton College, Gauhati University, India, M.Sc. in Mathematics from St. Stephen’s College, University of Delhi, India, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Sciences from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA. Prior to joining UMKC in 1989, he was a member of the technical staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories where he worked on teletraffic network routing and design. While at AT&T Bell Labs, he co-developed Facility Diverse Routing - a feature deployed in AT&T’s nationwide dynamic routing network.

His research interests are in network resilience, network routing and optimization, traffic engineering and design, network management, data center networking, and video quality-of-experience. He co-authored the books, “Routing, Flow, and Capacity Design in Communication and Computer Networks” (2004) and “Network Routing: Algorithms, Protocols, and Architectures” (1st edition, 2007; 2nd edition, 2017), both published by Morgan Kauffman/Elsevier.

He is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
