Welcome to the Network Research Lab at UCLA Computer Science Department. Our group, led by Prof. Mario Gerla, supports research projects in a broad range of topics in network communications including network protocols and architectures, modeling and analysis, wireless networks, sensor networks, car-to-car networks, peer-to peer techniques, medical networks, and network measurement. We focus on the use of modeling and analytical techniques to study challenging problems.
