Laboratory of Networking & Information Systems (Beta)

The Laboratory of Networking and Information Systems (NISLAB) is involved in providing novel perspectives to modern networking with emphasis on scalability, heterogeneity, and performance. Our research roots into the mathematical fields of graph theory and algorithms, probability and stochastic processes, and coding theory with applications to security, content synchronization, network monitoring, wireless spectrum management, and advanced networking for scientific applications.

Led jointly by Professors David Starobinski and Ari Trachtenberg in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boston University, the laboratory activities include a number of practical and theoretical projects involving about a dozen graduate and undergraduate students in the department.
