Network Engineering Science and Theory in Durham (NESTiD) is a new research group (since Jan 2021) in the Computer Science department at Durham University. NESTiD spans a wide area of research underpinning the fundamental theory, practical systems and applications of networks and distributed computing.

This is a broad-based research group with research foci including:

Network design and algorithms, Distributed and parallel computing and algorithms, Networked systems and applications, Security and resilience, Network science,  Dynamism and processes on networks,  Mathematical theory underpinning networks and communication, Social network design and human interaction, Cloud, edge, fog and wireless networks.
