About Me

My research interests span areas such as distributed real-time systems, resource management (e.g., energy management), wireless/mobile networks, wireless sensor networks, vehicular networks, smart phone apps, and pervasive healthcare applications and systems. I direct the Mobile Computing Lab (M-Lab), where we focus on projects such as mobile applications and services, wireless networks (primarily MANETs, VANETs, mesh networks, etc.), wireless sensor networks, QoS and real-time requirements, energy efficiency, and pervasive/mobile healthcare solutions. Our group’s research is funded through grants by NSF (including a 2006 CAREER award), Office of Naval Research, Army Research Office, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Motorola (Motorola Labs and Motorola Foundation), IBM (including a 2008 IBM Real-time Innovation Award), Toyota InfoTechnology Center, and Serim Research Corporation. Further, our lab has received hardware donations from Intel Corporation, Motorola Labs, Sprint, and Google.

Between 2010 and 2012, I also served as executive board member for Notre Dame’s Wireless Institute, which focuses on everything wireless, from radio technologies and protocols to wireless and mobile applications to “other” aspects of wireless communications such as social, legal, and business matters. I am also member of the Notre Dame Advanced Diagnostics and Therapeutics (AD&T) initiative at Notre Dame. More information about the M-Lab can be found via the link below.
