Research Areas: real-time systems, databases, data and event services, wireless sensor networks, information security

The objective of Sang Son's research is to design and evaluate models and methodologies for the development of robust and responsive computer systems and databases for complex real-time applications. He is working on supporting multi-dimensional requirements, including real-time, security, and fault-tolerance in distributed data services, and the problem of ensuring consistency while achieving high performance. His current research ranges from the theoretical study of scheduling algorithms and protocols for deeply embedded systems, to the development of real-time database systems and event services in wireless sensor networks.
