Biography: Born and raised in Connecticut.

Education:

  • B.S. in Applied Physics, Yale University, 2005.
  • M.S. in Electrical Engineering, University of California, Los Angeles (current), 2007.
    Thesis: Actuation-Assisted External Calibration of Distributed Sensor Networks
    (done at NESL)

Research Interests: My current research fuses several aspects of wireless sensor networks, namely localization, mobility, and vision. The goal of the project is to develop a vision-based self-localization algorithm for a network of camera nodes. To this end we have created a robotic pan-tilt platform for the Cyclops camera module and hope that this will yield improved results over prior research in this space. Previously, I have worked on security in sensor networks (hardware fingerprinting) and urban sensing applications.
