My sincere thanks also go to the many great faculty members who I worked with over the years: Prof. Azadeh Vosoughi, who served on my thesis and annual review committee, Prof. Alireza Seyedi, who served on my annual review committee, Prof. Sandhya Dwarkadas, who served on my thesis committee, Prof. Henry Kautz, who served as my thesis committee chair, and Prof. Michael Huang, who was a mentor to me as a teaching assistant. I would like to thank the University of Rochester for establishing the Center for Research Computing (CRC). My research simulations heavily depended on parallel computing using Bluehive, a CRC cluster, which accelerated my research progress 50 to 100 times. I cannot imagine how long my Ph.D. research would have lasted without Bluehive. I would also like to thank all my colleagues at the University of Rochester for their inspiration and collaboration. Among them, I would like to specifically acknowledge:
