Key areas of research at Networking and Systems Research Group spans from design of network protocols to analysis of social networks. Some of the areas we are interested in are listed below.

  • Design and implementation of  network protocols at various levels
  • Cloud computing
  • Performance measurements and analysis of network protocols
  • Analysis of social networks
  • Modeling of peer – to – peer networks
  • Innovations in web acceleration

We also have a special emphasis on networked systems for  low resource network environments specially in world’s developing regions.
