Computing and Networking Systems

Our mission is to address the performance, power management, security, reliability, and cost issues in computer and network systems and the development of distributed programming models.

In computer system design, active research projects include developing microarchitecture solutions to achieve high-integrity, security, privacy, and energy efficiency; and designing embedded systems, high-speed processors, and memory systems.
