Hiring: We are looking for self-motivated Ph.D. students to join us in fall 2022.

Research Interests:

  • IoT + AI Systems and Applications
  • Human-Centric Sensing
  • IoT Infrastructure Designs, including the components of Security, Wireless and Computing

Our current research focuses on building Internet of Things (IoT) systems with the AI technology to deepen and broaden the ways that we sense the physical world and enable innovative human-computer/ambience interactions. We aim to develop novel and useful sensing techniques to enable human-centric applications. We also care about the IoT infrastructure designs to secure critical IoT systems and provide efficient computation support for the IoT devices with limited resources and with mobility.
