[September 27th, 2021] We are recruiting two positions this coming year in Computer Science and Engineering, one tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level with a systems as a priority and one teaching position at the Assistant Teaching Professor level.
[September 6, 2021] Office hours for the fall semester will be Monday at 1 PM, Wednesday at 9 AM, and Friday at 2 PM. Friday’s office hours will be held via Zoom. All in-person office hours are held in 211B Cushing Hall.
[August 10, 2020] Office hours will be held virtually until mid-September unless specifically requested for in-person meetings. For in-person meetings, masks are required and the office area is limited to a maximum capacity of two. All in-person meetings will be held in 211B Cushing due to logistical issues associated with opening the CDT space in O’Shaughnessy.
[March 30th, 2020] Two updates with regards to papers. Our short paper for EuroViz 2020 entitled “Characterizing Exploratory Behaviors on a Personal Visualization Interface Using Interaction Logs” was accepted to appear. Congrats to Poorna on her hard work in driving the paper through.
Our paper presented last week at WristSense 2020 entitled “Improved Sleep Detection Through the Fusion of Phone Agent and Wearable Data Streams” won Honorable Mention for the Apple Best Paper Award. Congrats to Stephen on the presentation and Gonzalo on their work for the paper.
[January 27, 2020] Will be off to Dublin, Ireland in June 2020 for ICC 2020 as our paper on using aggregation as an indication of available bandwidth via purely passive estimations was accepted to the CQRM symposium. If I recall, it was roughly 20 years ago that I went to my first “big” conference attending ICC when it was in Helsinki, Finland. One out of two papers in on this go round to ICC 2020. Wicked cool paper by my former Ph. D student Dr. Lixing Song with an assist from my current Ph. D student Al-Amin Mohammed to get it over the finish line. Bit more on the paper after the break.
[January 26th, 2020] One item that comes up every once in a while is our old WeHab project which brought to bear low-cost peripherals for the purpose of helping out with stroke rehabilitation / balance impairment. For those who are so inclined, you are welcome to download the executables of the code along with instructions via Google Drive. Note that the executables come as is and may be a bit dated.
[January 23rd, 2020] Our journal paper entitled “A game-theoretic analysis on the economic viability of mobile content pre-staging” is now live via the Wireless Networks journal. The paper focuses on mobile content pre-staging with an eye towards whether or not said pre-staging is solely beneficial to the provider or pre-staging gains are shared with the end-user. This is related to our on-going work NSF grant focusing on PASS (Provider Accessible Storage Subsystem) as this was a pre-cursor paper to that effort that we published at the INFOCOM Workshop on Smart Data Pricing back in 2016. This particular paper offers some nice new insights and an expanded analysis relative to the shorter workshop paper. Kudos to Prof. Liao (my former student, now a tenured professor at Central Michigan) and Prof. Li for their fantastic work on this effort.
