Saswati Sarkar wins NSF CAREER Award


ISR alum Saswati Sarkar, an assistant professor in the University of Pennsylvania's Electrical and Systems Engineering Department, has won a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award for "Realizing the Potential of Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks through Holistic Resource Allocation." Sarkar will design an optimal distributed control framework that uses local observations and partial information of the resource requirements and availabilities at other nodes to attain efficiency. The resulting protocols are expected to be robust to variations in networking traffic and dynamic topological changes on account of mobility. Sarkar's Ph.D. advisor was Leandros Tassiulas, currently an ECE/ISR research professor.
