Research Statement

Romit's research interests are in wireless networking and protocol design mainly at the PHY/MAC layer, and in mobile computing at the application layer.

In wireless networking, our research is focussed on exploiting physical layer (PHY) capabilities towards wireless protocol design, often on the software radio platforms.

In mobile computing, we envision mobile smartphones (and emerging wearable devices) as a convergent platform for sensing, computing, and communications.

Our goal is to integrate these three capabilities thereby enabling new classes of personal and collaborative applications and technologies.
