  • Computer network (38.04%)
  • Computer security (12.25%)
  • The Internet (20.17%)

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

Jon Crowcroft mainly investigates Computer network, Computer security, The Internet, Software deployment and Internet privacy. Many of his studies on Computer network involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Publication. His work on Blockchain as part of general Computer security study is frequently connected to Work, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

The The Internet study combines topics in areas such as Service delivery framework, Service provider and Artificial intelligence. His work carried out in the field of Software deployment brings together such families of science as Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution, Edge computing, Edge device and Data analysis. His Distributed computing research integrates issues from Cellular network and Cache.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Leveraging Data Science to Combat COVID-19: A Comprehensive Review (59 citations)
  • A Survey of Opportunistic Offloading (56 citations)
  • Trustworthy Electronic Voting Using Adjusted Blockchain Technology (42 citations)

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

  • Computer network
  • The Internet
  • Operating system

His scientific interests lie mostly in Computer security, The Internet, Computer network, World Wide Web and Blockchain. His study in the field of Homomorphic encryption, Secret sharing and Privacy preserving is also linked to topics like Contact tracing. His study in The Internet is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Software deployment, Content management, Artificial intelligence, Edge computing and Mobile computing.

His work in Computer network is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Eigenvector centrality. His World Wide Web research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Popularity, Task, Internet privacy and Wireless mesh network. His Validator study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Quality of service and Distributed computing.
