Integrated Information Technology

Our Research

Integrated Information Technology faculty and students are designing solutions and creating new opportunities to enhance products, services and operations to better meet consumer needs. We design better technologies, more secure cyberinfrastructure, and more powerful data management. Our research contributes to advancing the science and application of information technology and informatics.

Research Strengths

We investigate techniques, technologies, and tools used in a modern cyberinfrastructure comprised of high-performance systems that use, process, transmit, and store information. This includes the design and implementation of high-speed switched networks, TCP optimization and experimental evaluation of congestion control algorithms such as BBR, HTCP and Cubic. It also includes applications of statistical methods and neural networks, web-based data mining and knowledge management. Our research in these areas applies both to the information systems and to the way students are taught and learn.
