Everything we do relates to understanding and harnessing computation and communication in computational, technological, and natural systems. We believe in thinking out-of-the-box and exploring the path not taken to discover new ideas in systems design. Our research areas of interest include, but are not limited to, cyber-physical, embedded, biological, and social applications.
We challenge the status quo by bringing science and engineering approaches together. In particular, we use network science, machine learning and optimization, and hardware prototyping to explore new angles in system design. Our current topics of interest go beyond traditional many-core platforms design and address Internet-of-Things (IoT), edge computing, social sensing, and other emerging areas of high societal relevance.
We illustrate our vision by exploring embedded, biological, and social applications. Our research results are highly visible, widely cited, and consistently funded. Would you like to join us?
