Dr Posco (Fung Po) Tso is a lecturer in the School of Computer Science at the Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU). Prior to joining LJMU, he was SICSA funded Next Generation Internet Fellow based in ENDS research group at the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow. He is currently researching in the areas of cloud computing, cloud data centre networks, and big data systems. He received my PhD degree from City University of Hong Kong in 2011.
His research interests include: network measurement and optimisation, cloud data centre resource management, data centre networking, software defined networking (SDN), Network Function Virtualisation, distributed systems as well as mobile computing and systems. His research outputs have appeared in the highly competitive top-tier conferences and journals in his field.
He is teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, including Computer Systems, Computer Networks, Cloud Computing as well as Research Topics in Computer Science. In 2016 he was nominited for the student union's Amazing Teacher award.
His research has been mainly funded by The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). His funded projects include:
- SYNC: Synergistic Network Policy Management for Cloud Data Centres, EPSRC, £125,000, 2016-2017.
- Fruit: The Federated Raspberry Pi Micro-infrastructure Testbed, EPSRC, £800,000, 2016-2018.
- Elephant Flows Scheduling in Data Center Networks Based on Stable Matching, NSF China, RMB 300,000 (£30,000), 2015-2017.
