The DEPEND group focuses on the research, design and validation of highly-available, reliable and trustworthy computing systems and networks. Our group is multi-disciplinary comprising members from the Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Computer Science whose expertise span across hardware and low-level architectures, operating systems and virtualization, cyber-physical systems, health informatics (embedded medical devices) and big-data analytics. With a strong experimental focus, all of the techniques and methods developed are tested on real systems or verified with actual production data.
Our group collaborates extensively with several industry partners and research institutions, for example IBM, Sun Microsystems (now Oracle), HP, Motorola, Microsoft, Intel, and Boeing, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, and the National Security Agency.
