Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Operating system
  • The Internet
  • Computer network

His primary areas of investigation include Distributed computing, The Internet, Computer network, Wireless sensor network and Server. His study in the field of Data consistency is also linked to topics like Eventual consistency. Eric Brewer combines subjects such as Scalability, Middleware, Systems architecture and Service with his study of The Internet.

He interconnects Exploit, Key distribution in wireless sensor networks and Software deployment in the investigation of issues within Computer network. When carried out as part of a general Wireless sensor network research project, his work on nesC is frequently linked to work in Power management and Core component, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. The various areas that Eric Brewer examines in his Server study include Thread and Compiler.

His most cited work include:

  • The nesC language: a holistic approach to networked embedded systems (1691 citations)
  • TinyOS: An Operating System for Sensor Networks (1111 citations)
  • SEDA: an architecture for well-conditioned, scalable internet services (828 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Eric Brewer mainly focuses on Distributed computing, Computer network, The Internet, World Wide Web and Telecommunications. His Distributed computing research incorporates themes from Wireless sensor network, Persistent data structure, Programming paradigm and Adaptation. He has included themes like Wireless, Overlay network and Internet access in his Computer network study.

His studies in The Internet integrate themes in fields like Scalability, Interactive kiosk, Service and Services computing. His work deals with themes such as Fault tolerance, Web server and Server, which intersect with Scalability. His work in Telecommunications tackles topics such as Software deployment which are related to areas like Developing regions.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Distributed computing (20.75%)
  • Computer network (18.87%)
  • The Internet (16.98%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2019)?

  • Cellular network (4.25%)
  • Telecommunications (12.74%)
  • Rural electrification (3.30%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Eric Brewer focuses on Cellular network, Telecommunications, Rural electrification, Electrification and Economies of scale. The Cellular network study combines topics in areas such as Service, Mobile telephony, GSM, Base station and Service provider. His Service research incorporates elements of Use case and Software deployment.

His study with GSM involves better knowledge in Computer network. His work on Cellular communication as part of general Computer network research is often related to Timing advance, thus linking different fields of science. His study on Work is intertwined with other disciplines of science such as Distributed computing and Key.

Between 2012 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Borg, Omega, and Kubernetes (228 citations)
  • Borg, Omega, and Kubernetes: Lessons learned from three container-management systems over a decade (98 citations)
  • Scalable DC Microgrids for Rural Electrification in Emerging Regions (69 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Operating system
  • The Internet
  • Computer network

Eric Brewer spends much of his time researching Telecommunications, Cellular network, Microgrid, Rural electrification and Scalability. His Telecommunications study combines topics in areas such as Service provider and Mobile telephony. His Cellular network study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Computer security, Service data point, General partnership and Revenue.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Control engineering, Developing regions and Risk analysis. The concepts of his GSM study are interwoven with issues in Cell Broadcast, Customised Applications for Mobile networks Enhanced Logic, GSM services and Cellular traffic. Eric Brewer conducted interdisciplinary study in his works that combined Work and Computer network.
