Expectations from new students

I am looking for people who have a passion on research, who care deeply about the Internet that our whole society is now depending on, who has gained decent knowledge about the TCP/IP protocol stack (knowedge about NDN is a big plus) and good system development skills, and who is a good team player. Below I copied a few lines from Prof. Bin Zhao of U. Chicago with some small revisions:

Creativity, openmindedness and persistency, plus team work, lead to success.
