Manish Kushwaha



Graduate Research Assistant 

I am a graduate student in EECS department, and a research assistant at Institute for Software Integrated Systems (ISIS) at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN. I finished my Master's degree in Computer Science from Vanderbilt University in August 2005. I did my Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, New Delhi in India. 

Here is my resume.


Research Interests

My research interests are in the areas of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and ubiquitous computing, including

- the design and development of sensornet systems for ambient intelligence and smart environments.

- applying information fusion and statistical inference methods to facilitate such technologies.

- lightweight, adaptive service-oriented architecture for sensor networks.

- multitarget tracking and urban surveillance using Heterogeneous Sensor Networks (HSNs) through multimodal data fusion.
