The goal of Professor Agha's research is to understand the nature of concurrent computation. Results of the research will lead to new ways for building and maintaining open distributed systems. Specifically, Agha's group is developing concurrent programming languages and systems which support applications with high-performance, fault-tolerance or real-time requirements. The group's research is both theoretical and practical. The goal of the theory is to provide a clear semantics for new programming constructs and software composition techniques. The goal of developing systems to experiment with the ideas and provide a proof of principle.

Research Areas/Expertise:

  • Parallel and Distributed Algorithms and Applications
  • Network Embedded Systems Software
  • Large-scale Multi-agent Systems
  • Concurrent Programming Languages and Semantics
