Systems and networking underpin nearly every aspect of our lives, from business and health care to transportation and entertainment. Research advances are crucial for providing new services and ensuring reliability and security in our increasingly digital world. Through theoretical advances, practical implementations, and open-source contributions, our research groups continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible in connecting systems and users.

Our networking groups examine topics ranging from wireless and mobile networking, massively parallel hardware for ML/AI, the Internet of Things, cybersecurity, V2X-based transportation systems, software-defined networking, applications of ML/AI for network operations, and more.

Meanwhile, our systems faculty are engaged in research projects that will lead to more robust, reliable, and secure computer systems for the real world, conducting state-of-the-art work in systems for big data, networks and network architectures, mobile security, cloud computing, and data-intensive computing and databases.
