Serge Plotkin

Associate Professor of Computer Science, Emeritus
Plotkin's focus is on optimization problems that are encountered in the context of design, management, and maintenance of broadband communication networks. Currently his main effort in this area is concentrated on development of algorithms for network topology design, routing, capacity sizing, server placement, and fair resource allocation. His goal is to develop both offline strategies that can be used during network design stage, as well as online strategies that can be applied to optimize existing network infrastructure.
