Network and Decision Systems (NDS)

Founded in 2020, our laboratory conducts researches in the overlap of communication networks and operations research. We solve complex network systems by understanding the system through the lenses of operations research. New solutions are developed from the insights of the understanding.

The current projects span various topics:
- Age of information
- Edge computing
- Datacenter networks
- Drone & IoT

Techniques used in these projects include (but are not limited to):
- Convex optimization
- Game theory
- Distributed algorithms
- Reinforcement learning

We are looking for highly motivated students, research assistants, and interns with strong mathematical and programming backgrounds to join our journey. Candidates could come from computer science, computer engineering, mathematics, and physics backgrounds. Don't hesitate to get in touch with if you are interested in our lab.
