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.
