Biography

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 healthcare technologies, wireless real-time communication, publish/subscribe for mobile/wireless environments, resource-efficient broadcast in ad-hoc networks, configurable and customizable QoS routing techniques, experimental test beds for mesh and sensor networks, in-network processing, and context-aware ubiquitous computing. 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.

Making wearable smart devices “smarter” and more secure

April 22, 2019

Researchers in the College of Engineering have been pursuing a new authentication process for wearable devices to make them less susceptible to attack. In fact, they have developed a generic implicit wearable device user authentication mechanism that uses combinations of three types of less-informative coarse-grained minute-level biometrics: behavioral (step counts), physiological (heart rate) and hybrid (calorie burn and metabolic equivalent of task), all of which can be easily obtained from most wearables.
