AquaLab conduct research on large-scale distributed systems and networking. Their approach is mainly experimental, focusing on the design, deployment and evaluation of systems that people use. Much of their work is guided by the unique perspective provided by devices at the edge of the Internet and captured through their users/collaborators who adopt and use the software.
