Founded in 2002, our laboratory conducts research in wired and wireless networking systems and theory. Our past contributions have spanned research on Internet routing, peer-to-peer systems, and Internet measurement. Our current focus is on networked wireless systems of various kinds. Our projects span exciting, cutting edge technologies:
- Wireless sensor networks and robotic networks
- Other edge networking technologies such as mesh networks and home networking
- Data center networking and cloud-based systems
- Internet measurements
- Software-defined networking
