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

His main research concerns Computer network, Cache, Distributed computing, The Internet and Wireless. His study connects Greedy algorithm and Computer network. In his study, Software deployment and Scheme is strongly linked to Content based routing, which falls under the umbrella field of Cache.

The concepts of his Distributed computing study are interwoven with issues in Network topology and Routing protocol. His The Internet research includes elements of Forwarding plane, Computer security, Telecommunications, Routing control plane and Mobile device. His work in Wireless covers topics such as Top-down and bottom-up design which are related to areas like Link layer.

Between 2012 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • A Model Based TCP-Friendly Rate Control Protocol (249 citations)
  • On the complexity of optimal routing and content caching in heterogeneous networks (128 citations)
  • On the steady-state of cache networks (84 citations)

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

  • Computer network
  • Operating system
  • The Internet

Computer network, Distributed computing, Cache, Network architecture and Cache algorithms are his primary areas of study. As part of his studies on Computer network, Jim Kurose frequently links adjacent subjects like Greedy algorithm. His work deals with themes such as Delay-tolerant networking, Overhead and Backup, which intersect with Distributed computing.
