Our Systems faculty are engaged in research projects that will lead to more robust, reliable, and secure computer systems for the real world. They are 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.
Research Groups and Labs
Distributed Systems and Networks Lab
Researchers in the DSN focus on the interplay between theory and practice in distributed systems and networks, with a goal of creating a paradigm shift in the way such systems are designed and built.
The overarching goal of the lab is to advance the principles and practices in building next-generation dependable systems for emerging platforms.
