The Group in Aug, 2013 (Group Evolution)
Welcome to the Networks Group at Cornell! We are broadly interested in networks.
The current focus is on control and optimization of engineering networks such as the Internet and power grids. Special attention is given to obtaining compact global understanding, providing predictions that can be quantitatively verified by empirical data, and designing scalable architecture and distributed algorithms. We are also very interested in developing related theoretical and experimental techniques.
