Mani Chandy works in two related areas: (1) sense & respond systems that detect and respond to critical events and (2) methods for developing reliable distributed systems, particularly distributed control systems. As with everything else in RSRG this work develops theory, builds prototypes, and is interdisciplinary straddling control theory, stochastic processes and statistics, optimization and game theory, and temporal logic.


Tracey Ho's research interests are at the intersection of information theory, networking, and machine learning. She is particularly interested in the theoretical and practical implications of generalizing network behavior from routing/forwarding to network coding. Her previous and ongoing work considers routing, compression, reliability, coordination, and security in distributed network operation.


Katrina Ligett's research is centered in algorithms, particularly online algorithms, algorithmic game theory, and data privacy. Her work in game theory explores the implications for complex systems of applying simple modeling and learning assumptions on the rational agents participating in the systems. Her data privacy work seeks to provide a mathematical framework for understanding the fundamental tensions and tradeoffs involved in the use of databases of sensitive information.


Steven Low's research is currently directed toward the control and optimization of communication networks and the electricity grid. In the past, he has developed a duality model of network congestion control that helps understand the current internet congestion control algorithms, expose their deficiencies, and design more efficient ones. Currently, he is focusing on developing new algorithms and architectures for handling intermittency in the electricity grid.



Adam Wierman's research interests center around resource allocation and scheduling decisions in computer systems and services. More specifically, his work focuses both on developing analytic techniques in stochastic modeling, queueing theory, scheduling theory, and game theory, and applying these techniques to application domains such as energy-efficient computing, data centers, social networks, and the electricity grid.
