Ranysha Ware, a Ph.D. student in Carnegie Mellon University’s Computer Science Department, has received a 2020 Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) from the Internet Engineering Task Force. She is being recognized for her work on congestion control fairness.
Ware leads a research project on internet fairness that recently demonstrated how Google’s new congestion control algorithm (CCA) gives an unfair advantage to its own traffic, and proposed new guidelines for developing future algorithms.
She is one of six recipients of the ANRP this year, and one of two who will present their work March 21–27 at the IETF 107 in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Ware earned her M.S. in computer science from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She is a Facebook Emerging Scholar and two-time recipient of the National GEM Consortium Fellowship.
