I work with a group of student collaborators at the Networked Systems Laboratory. Please visit the lab website to learn about current projects.

Check out Research Diaries to learn about different aspects of planning or doing research.

I am looking for outstanding Undergraduate, Masters, and Ph.D. students to work on research projects that span wireless and sensor networks, network protocols and architectures, mobile sensing, social networks, and distributed systems. Lately, I am also working on computer vision and its applications. Typically, I can consider Masters students for funding only after working together for a semester.

Brief bio: Postdoc (Stanford University), Ph.D. (University of Southern California), Masters and Bachelors (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).
