The Networks and Systems Optimization Laboratory, led by Prof. Satyajayant “Jay” Misra, is dedicated to solving challenging networking and cybersecurity problems in diverse networks, such as Internet of Things, Smart Grid, Online Social Networks, and High Performance Computing. The group’s principle is to design simple and provably good solutions to optimization and security problems.

In keeping with the broad interest base of the laboratory, the research has been funded by the US NSF, DoD, DoE, and Department of Education. The lab have interdisciplinary collaborators from Electrical Engineering, Biology, Agriculture, Animal and Range Science, Special Education, and Industrial Engineering.
