Professor David Hutchison

Distinguished Professor

Research Overview

I lead the Lancaster research on resilience for communications and networked systems; this is a relatively new area that I started with James Sterbenz in 2008. We have developed a framework for resilience management that can cope with challenges including natural disasters and cyberattacks such as DDoS, and applied it to systems such as clouds and utility networks. This ongoing work is crucial for the protection of critical infrastructures and the services running on them. I am Vice-Chair of RECODIS, the EU COST Action on resilient communications, and lead researcher for resilience in the new Network 2030 ITU standards initiative.
