Computer and Network Systems
The Computer and Network Systems research area focuses on optimizing computing networks, enabling secure and efficient use of resources from both a technical and economic standpoint.
Faculty conduct research into wireline networking areas such as network architectures and economics, network measurement and management, peer-to-peer networks, and cloud computing to improve the Internet and other networking experiences.
In wireless networking, faculty research mobile ad-hoc networks, cognitive radio, wireless sensors, Internet-of-Things, and optical wireless to make better use of network infrastructure and accommodate growing demand for high-speed mobile networking.
Faculty also work on questions related to cyber security and forensics to protect the digital world. Recent research also focuses on using mathematical modeling to understand complex networks, including technical networks, such as the Internet, as well as biological and social networks.
Our projects page contains summaries of representative research projects in computer networking.
