I’m an Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Stony Brook University, also affiliated with the Smart Energy Techologies (SET Cluster). Before that I worked at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center as a Research Staff Member since 2004.

My research interests are in mobile and embedded sensing systems and applications (e.g., location based services, healthcare), edge computing, Internet-of-Things, sensor networks, energy and power efficiency. I have over 90 referred publications which in total have been cited more than 9000 times according to Google Scholar, and 23 granted/pending multi-national/US patents/applications.

I have worked on various projects in these areas: indoor floor map construction, indoor vehicle/smartphone tracking and localization, mobile crowdsensing and its infrastructure, cloud based publish/subscribe service, wide area messaging, high availability and collaborative stream processing systems, sensor networks (robust data delivery, sensing coverage, and false data injection attacks).
