Computer and Network Systems

Network cables

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.
