Prof. Shay Kutten Research has concentrated on protocols, modeling and architectural design for communication networks and distributed systems. In particular he concentrated on using theory in order to obtain practical systems and solutions. Most of the theory utilized in communication research until recently, came from fields that were traditionally associated with Electrical Engineering. The research of Dr Kutten has been concentrated on utilizing Computer Science.
