Piotr Cholda specializes in the design of computer and communications networks. At the beginning of his career, his research focused on reliability modeling and the optimization of resilient multilayer long-haul networks (like the ones based on generalized multiprotocol label switching (GMPLS); he later moved toward softer problems, like the effective provisioning of services to network clients. His interests extend to problems embracing so-called quality of recovery (QoR), resilience-based differentiation, and quality of service (QoS)/QoR for peer-to-peer networking. Recently, Piotr has focused on risk-based communications networking, which he perceives as a very promising research field. In this area, the interface between business needs and threats from one side and the resilience technology from the other can be used to obtain a practical equilibrium where a balance between client needs and technological possibilities can be found.

Piotr graduated from AGH University of Science and Technology (Krakow, Poland) with an MS in networking in 2001. He obtained a doctorate in telecommunications in 2006 from the same university. He then joined the Department of Telecommunications there, and is now an assistant professor.

Piotr is the co-author of 36 refereed technical papers (11 of which are published in journals) and two conference tutorials. He has worked on network recovery problems in the following European projects: IP Nobel/Nobel II, NoE EuroNGI/EuroFGI, STREP SmoothIT, and the NoE Euro-NF EU Project. Piotr was a technical program committee (TPC) co-chair of NGI 2008 and NGI 2012, a TPC co-chair of the Communications QoS, Reliability and Modelling Symposium at ICC 2011, and a TPC co-chair of DRCN 2011. Now, he serves as a TPC co-chair for NOMS 2014.

Aside for preparing reviews for Computing Reviews, Piotr serves as an editor of the book review column in IEEE Communications Magazine. He is a member of the ACM and IEEE.
