Research Statement

As computer systems become more and more networked and complex, new foundations are needed for understanding and controlling their integral properties. The CIC research group is devoted to investigation, establishment, and experimental evaluation of new theoretical foundations and system artifacts to significantly improve the systems properties from performance, reliability, security, to energy efficiency.

The systems of particular interest include distributed systems and the Internet, parallel computers, mobile embedded devices, and networked computing systems in general.

Recent Research Focus

  • Cloud computing: autonomic management of virtualized machines and appliances
  • Scalable and secure Internet services and architecture
  • System support for mobility and adaptation in pervasive services
  • High performance and fault resilient computing
  • Energy-efficient design and optimization in embedded systems and datacenters
  • Vehicular networks and telematics applications
