  • The Networked Dynamical Systems Laboratory (NetDyLab) is looking of a graduate student with experience on Arduinos or similar microcontrollers to participate on an outreach program that involves mentoring a high school student on the design of a network system for distributed synchronization.

    Please see details below.

    Project: Network Synchronization using Synthetic Fireflies

    Synchronization of networked systems is a pervasive feature in our world. In nature, for instance, synchronization is used by fireflies and crickets as a communication mechanism to attract females. In engineering, network synchronization is critical for the proper operation of communication networks, the Internet, and power grids. The goal of this project is to develop low-cost and low-consumptions devices that can mimic the behavior of fireflies in order to achieve synchronization.The student will design and implement light emitter programmable modules (synthetic fireflies), that periodically emit light pulses (mimicking fireflies’ firings), and update its period between pulses depending on the time difference between its own pulse and that of its neighbors. Using an algorithm developed in the Networked Dynamics Laboratory (NetDyLab) at Hopkins, these interactions between synthetic fireflies will lead towards the synchronize firing of the whole population. The developed devices have also the potential of being used as a distributed mechanism for synchronizing wake-up cycles in sensor networks.

    NetDyLab (Networked Dynamics Laboratory):

    The NetDyLab focuses on the study of interconnected (networked) dynamic systems within science and engineering. Using mathematical tools from control, dynamical systems, and optimization, the lab seeks to understand the global behavior of these networks and learn how they can be modified to meet specific engineering requirements.

    Mentoring requirements: The student mentor will meet twice a week with a high school student to help them design the synthetic firefly module. The mentor should have provable experience with Arduinos or similar microcontrollers.

    Hours: 3 hours, twice a week, for 14 week.

    Compensation: The student will receive compensation according to the task required.

    If interested, please send an email with your CV attached to Prof. Mallada at

    Provable experience on Arduinos is a must.
