Laboratory of Networking & Information Systems

The Laboratory of Networking and Information Systems (NISLAB) is involved in providing novel perspectives to modern applications in software, networking, and cybersecurity with emphasis on scalability, resilience, and performance. Our research roots into the mathematical fields of graph theory and algorithms, game theory, applied cryptography, probability and statistics, and coding theory with applications to software and network security, IoT security, distributed systems, and network economics.

Led jointly by Professors David Starobinski and Ari Trachtenberg in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Division of Systems 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.
