• Achieving High-Bandwidth Peer-to-Peer Data Transfers with the Right Incentives in Heterogeneous Environments. We developed a new peer-to-peer file transfer protocol, called TFTTP (Tit-For-Tat Transfer Protocol). In this project, I am working with Assistant Professor Ben Leong and Associate Professor Yong Meng Teo.
