NS-CTA research spans multiple types of networks (communications, information, social/cognitive) and focuses on the behavior of composite networks and the generalities between types of networks. Research projects are highly collaborative and multi-disciplinary, whether based in one of the three academic research centers, the interdisciplinary research center, or one of the two cross-cutting research initiatives.
