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.
As mobile devices flourish, communication networks are growing and changing. Our research into ad-hoc mobile networks, peer-to-peer networks and optical communications addresses current needs to make better use of network infrastructure to accommodate growing demand for high-speed, mobile networking.
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.
