The Computer Architecture (comparch) Lab conducts research on all aspects of future microprocessor technology including performance, power, multi-threading, chip-multiprocessing, security, programmability, reliability, interaction with compilers and software, and the impact of future technologies.
Faculty: Ling Liu, Calton Pu
DiSL offers research expertise in distributed and Internet computing systems and distributed data intensive systems. Most of the research projects conducted in DiSL have strong emphasis on systems issues such as scalability, reliability, security, availability and efficiency, and data management issues such as data storage, data mining and data analysis. We are interested in theories and techniques that not only make the distributed systems scalable and efficient but also reliable and secure.
Faculty: Kishore Ramachandran
Research in the Embedded Pervasive Lab (EPL) covers a range of topics including distributed programming idioms, networked embedded sensors, P2P video streaming, middleware for efficient large-scale stream processing, opportunistic networking, virtualization technologies, and smart storages incorporating Flash-based SSDs. EPL is producing systems for a world where machines, devices and networking technologies work in concert to help individuals use them with as little instruction as possible.
Faculty: Greg Eisenhauer, Ada Gavriloska, Matthew Wolf, Jeff Young
The Korvo research group of researchers focuses on pushing the boundaries of computer systems research. We take an experimental approach to computer systems, working heavily with industry and governmental stakeholders with real-world problems as motivation for our efforts to refine and fundamentally restructure the way operating systems work. Our interests cover the areas of Cloud Computing, High Performance Computing, and Internet of Things, with particular focus on building systems that can deal with tight orchestration of large streams of data, wherever that data source may come from.
Faculty: Taesoo Kim
In the “SS Lab,” housed within the Georgia Tech Information Security Center, we build practical systems with focuses on security, performance, robustness, or often just for fun. Our research projects have been published in top academic conferences, and have made great impacts on real programs, such as Firefox and Android, that people use every day.
Faculty: Mostafa Ammar, Constantine Dovrolis, Jim Xu, Ellen Zegura, Russ Clark
Our networks group aims to understand and advance the theory and practice of networks, whether they be mobile, wireless, Internet, campus, home, physical, virtual, human-constructed or naturally occurring. We combine modeling with measurement and experimentation to connect insights to novel approaches to solving problems. Our areas of expertise include network algorithmics, multicast, multimedia, disruption-tolerant networking, mobile computing, network operations, Internet economics, and network science.
Faculty: Lance Fortnow, Zvi Galil, Dick Lipton, Milena Mihail, Chris Peikert, Richard Peng, Dana Randall, Prasad Tetali, Santosh Vempala, H. Venkateswaran, Eric Vigoda
Our theory group has expertise spanning foundations and applications of algorithms and computational complexity theory, including combinatorial optimization, approximation algorithms, randomized algorithms, stochastic processes, spectral methods, algorithmic game theory, high-dimensional geometry, network models, and cryptography. The theory group also constitutes some of the core faculty of both the College of Computing’s Algorithms & Randomness Center (ARC) and Georgia Tech’s Ph.D. program in Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization (ACO).
