CNS is proud to announce that we have added four new faculty members to our roster, all of whom bring to the Center an exciting perspective on the work that can be done in systems and networking research. James Fowler s Professor of Medical Genetics and Political Science at the University of California, San Diego. His work lies at the intersection of the natural and social sciences, with a focus on social networks, behavioral science, evolution, politics, genetics, and big data.
Ranjit Jhala specializes in researching problems in Programming Languages and Software Engineering, specifically focusing on techniques for building reliable computer systems. His work draws from, combines, and contributes to the areas of model checking, program analysis and automated deduction.
Sorin Lerner’s research interests lie in programming language and analysis techniques for making software systems easier to write, maintain and understand, including static program analysis, domain specific languages, compilation, formal methods and automated theorem proving.
Steven Swanson research focuses on understanding the implications of emerging technology trends on computing systems. He leads the Non-Volatile Systems Laboratory where he oversees a wide range of projects related to non-volatile memories, how computer systems can leverage them to increase performance and efficiency, and other system-level issues they raise (e.g., in security).
