My multidisciplinary research looks at how we can co-design computer hardware and software to enable energy-efficient mobile computing systems that can accurately sense humans and the world that surrounds them. More specifically, my current research largely focuses on developing novel sensing, communication, and energy management techniques that enable closed-loop sensing systems that optimize our resources, health, and wireless environment. The techniques I develop are applicable to any low-power energy constrained device and can benefit application spaces including mobile health, smart homes/buildings, and precision agriculture.
Prior to joining UMass Amherst, I had appointments at Disney Research and HP Labs where I worked on a number of projects spanning several broad categories of wearable and IoT applications.
I received my PhD in Computer Systems Engineering from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 2013 and was co-advised by Deepak Ganesan (CS) and Tilman Wolf (ECE). My dissertation focused on reducing dependencies on batteries by exploiting energy harvesting to enable passive embedded computing systems.
