From classical to quantum networking: Leveraging networks to advance distributed science
Dr. Rajkumar Kettimuthu is a Computer Scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, a Senior Scientist at University of Chicago and a Senior Fellow at Northwestern-Argonne Institute of Science and Engineering. His research interests include intelligent compute and data infrastructure for science, advanced wired and wireless communications for science, and Quantum networks. Data transfer protocol and tools developed by him and his colleagues at Argonne are deployed in 60K+ locations in six continents moving 5 Petabytes+ of data every day. He has co-authored 150+ peer-reviewed articles. He is a recipient of R&D 100 award. He is a distinguished member of ACM and a senior member of IEEE.
Networks play an important role in advancing science. Scientific workflows often utilize geographically distributed resources and move large quantities of data among those resources. Research and education networks have increased their capacities by several orders of magnitude in the past few decades to meet the requirements of the distributed data intensive science. In this talk, I will provide an overview of our work in supporting the evolving communication requirements of distributed science in the classical network environments. I will also discuss our recent efforts in quantum networks.
