Research at NCL

Currently, we focus on developing dependable and sustainable Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) for Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT) applications. Some key performance metrics include timeliness, fault tolerance, and energy efficiency of CPS systems. In general, we are doing applied, interdisciplinary research revolving around computer science, electrical engineering, and a bit of math :)
