Professor Bruck's research interests include parallel and distributed computing, fault-tolerant computing, error-correcting codes, computation theory and biological systems.
His group is pursuing research in information theory and systems and the theory biological networks. Specifically, in the area of information theory and systems, we explore data representation schemes for multi-level flash memory as well as for novel substrates. The recent developments of rank modulation and floating codes are representative examples of this work. In the area of biological networks, the group studies the computational power of stochastic chemical reaction networks and how they relate to more conventional models of computation. In addition, the group developes mathematical abstractions to enable the analysis of stochastic biological networks; specifically, generalizing the notion of logic design to probabilistic logic design considering relay circuits where deterministic switches are replaced by probabilistic switches.
