NetSyn Lab

Welcome to NetSyn!

Our everyday life runs on networks. From the way we communicate to the way we learn, work, vote, and pay, all depend on a network.
NetSyn lab's research aims at making all those networks secure, reliable, and performant.
To do so, we go beyond traditional discipline barriers and apply various techniques and technologies including measurements, machine learning, data processing, and hardware.

Interested in working with us?
Prospective PhD students: please apply here and mention my name in your application. 
Prospective research interns: please email me and include your CV and one publication or project you have worked on.
Students already in Princeton: please email me, I am happy to meet and/or brainstorm about research projects or thesis.

Curious about what NetSyn means?
Net is obviously for networks. Syn (συν-) is a prefix occurring in loanwords from Greek, having the same function as co- (synthesis; synoptic); used, with the meaning “with,” “together,” in the formation of compound words (synsepalous) or “synthetic” in such compounds (syngas).
