Computer systems are the building blocks for the services and devices we use on a daily basis, from the internet of things (IoT) and mobile devices to massive data centers. Computer systems research comprises the design and analysis of these ubiquitous computing technologies through different characteristics, including performance, robustness, security and efficiency. Research in this area bridges application developers and users with the underlying computing technologies. Systems research at UC Davis includes research in computer architecture, networking, databases, operating systems, parallel and distributed computing and security. By increasing our understanding of and improving computing systems, this research enables the next generation of computing applications and technology.
