Expectations from new students

I am looking for people who are passionate about networking research and care deeply about the Internet that our whole society now depends on, who have decent knowledge about the TCP/IP protocol stack (knowedge about NDN is a big plus) and good system development skills, and who are good team players. The following few lines are borrowed from Prof. Bin Zhao of University of Chicago (with a few nits), and match my expectations: Creativity, openmindedness and persistency, plus team work, lead to innovative solutions to help move the Internet forward.
