International student profile - Suresh Vishnoi

“I worked at a world class facility in Plymouth University under a highly rated professor, Dr Bogdan Ghita, and it was nothing less than a dream come true. The infrastructure of the University is great and the study environment is encouraging and enables one to expand his/her horizons further.

My research topic was one of the hot topics of Computer Networks and around the world, ‘User Traffic Profiling and Modelling’. My project involved different classifications of network such as streaming, gaming, and downloading, etc. I also needed to identify the pattern of each of the applications.

I gained a lot of experiences during my stay, which not only strengthened my technical background but also helped me to improve at a professional level.

As well as the work, I will remember the night parties and hangouts with friends. Oceana, Cuba and the Students Union (UPSU) were my favourite places to go.

Once I graduate from VIT University I will take a break for a little while and then I will seek work to gain technical work experience. 

I consider myself an ambassador and advocate of Plymouth University. It is a place to explore not only yourself but also other cultures (English and European among others). It is an awesome platform to improve your skills.”

Suresh Vishnoi

Living in Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City, was an important part of my life because during that time I explored my strength and capacity. I found the people in general at Plymouth University very helpful and thus the stay became a memorable one.

Suresh’s supervisor, Dr Bogdan Ghita, adds: 

"I have had the pleasure to supervise Suresh Vishnoi for his final year project during his semester abroad at Plymouth University. Suresh has been an excellent student, hard worker and keen researcher. His project on traffic profiling focused on defining the characteristics of applications and embedding them into an evaluation engine. He faced a steep learning curve in the area of his project but was happy to tackle all challenges and produce a software for parsing and classifying network traffic flows. As part of his project, Suresh was able to quickly acquire the necessary programming skills and develop an understanding of the analysis and storage of network traffic information, then successfully continued to develop the analysis routines while working closely with postgraduate researchers."
