I work in the area of wireless networks and mobile systems, with applications to the Internet of Things (IoT). My research group focuses on the design and implementation of software-hardware systems that deliver ubiquitous sensing, computing, and communications at scale. We borrow techniques from diverse areas including computer networks, machine learning, signal processing, circuit design, and HCI.
