Expertise

The Network Engineering Research Group focuses on the core technology that enables the plethora of diverse devices in the Internet to communicate effectively and reliably.

Objective

The Network Engineering Research Group aims to develop core communication technology to enable more effective and reliable communication through the internet.

Research Focus
  • Wireless networks: The research addresses challenging issues with environmentally friendly energy efficient algorithms and protocols for different forms of wireless networks operating in day–to–day as well as extreme conditions.
  • Distributed Systems: Current research is centred on Grid and Cloud computing. We also have interests in eScience and sensor information processing.
  • Security, Trust and Cooperation: The focus of our current research is how to improve security for the users who access resources via networks. We contribute to the international Honeynet project and share their goal of learning the tactics and motives involved in computer and network attacks, and sharing the lessons learned.
  • Digital preservation: The problem of ensuring that resources created electronically are accessible to future generations is becoming a world wide concern as more and more of our documents and artifacts are "born digital".
