Research Topics

The research topics investigated by the faculty members of the Lab include:

  • Cybersafety and Disinformation
  • Geometric approaches to the analysis of large-scale networks and big data
  • Self-organized systems (e.g., social, Internet, and brain networks): properties, evolution, realistic topology generators, future/missing link prediction, community detection
  • Mathematical physics of networks (Hamiltonian/Lagrangian dynamics); (iv) navigation/routing in the Internet and other complex systems
  • Statistical inference methods and hyperbolic mapping of real networks
  • Network performance analysis and large-scale simulation
  • Software-Defined-Networks (SDN)
  • Device-centric Access Control
  • Transactional workload scalability with consistency-preserving replication
  • Exploiting social trust to secure distributed systems
  • Identity and trust management
  • Authentication management
  • Web privacy
  • Cybersecurity
