Sohaib and Sara Abbasi Professor of Computer Science

Research Interests:

Security assessment of SCADA networks, operating system dependability and security, active spaces for ubiquitous computing and the design of peer-to-peer distributed oeprating systems

Biography:

Professor Campbell's research interests are the problems, engineering and construction techniques of complex system software. Security, continuous media, and real-time control and pose a challenge, especially to operating system designers. Ubiquitous, distributed and parallel systems require complex resource management and efficient implementations. Object-oriented design aids organizing software, supports customization and offer new approaches to building dynamic distributed systems and middleware. Over time, research in system software has become increasingly important and the construction of complex system software a focus for advanced software engineering techniques.

His current research projects include security assessment of SCADA networks, operating system dependability and security, active spaces for ubiquitous computing, and the design of peer-to-peer distributed operating systems.
