Research Interests

Berry's research covers resource allocation problems that arise in networked systems ranging from communication networks to social networks. This work uses mathematical models to gain insights into such systems and draws on tools from stochastic modeling, optimization, economics and algorithms. Specific topics of current interest include developing distributed resource allocation technicques for wireless networks, dynamic spectrum sharing and wireless spectrum policy, understanding the role of incentives in network security and modeling learning and adoption in social networks.
