Roch Guérin, chair of computer science and engineering at the McKelvey School of Engineering and the Harold B. & Adelaide G. Welge Professor of Computer Science, received a $48,506 grant from Google to study networks that connect data centers.

The grant will fund research aimed at making communication in these networks more efficient, getting information where it needs to go in time while also using less bandwidth during peak times, thereby lowering costs.
