As of July 2014, I have joined Microsoft Research as a Research Scientist. I am building new sensing technologies for continuous health monitoring, exploring some of the many crazy ideas I had over the years and busy helping my colleagues make amazing software and hardware products. In June 2014 I graduated with a PhD from the University of Washington's Computer Science & Engineering department specializing in Ubiquitous Computing. I was advised by the awesome Shwetak N. Patel who is a joint faculty member in both CSE and EE.

During my studies I collaborated with Jeffrey Hightower and Beverly Harrison over at Intel Research Labs, Seattle.

My doctorate research focused on developing novel sensing technologies and supporting software for the home that use minimal sensors, are low cost and easy to deploy. I also built and evaluated many innovative electro-mechanical haptic feedback interfaces.

Prior to my Ph.D., I graduated with a course-focused M.Sc degree in Computer Science with a major GPA of 4.0 from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2009, where I was advised by Gregory Abowd. I specialized in operating systems, networking, embedded systems and getting things done.

I was named one of Forbes "30 under 30" disrupters in technology by Forbes magazine in January 2012.

I was awarded the Intel Science & Technology Fellowship for 2011-2012 and the A.Kumar & Roberta L. Bhasin fellowship in 2011. In 2009, I was awarded the Donald C. Whitworth endowed Fellowship by the CSE department. In November, 2009 I won the Madrona prize for the most "entrepreneurially interesting" graduate research presentation. In addition, I have won three best paper awards and two others have received honorable mentions.

I enjoy photography, hacking and tinkering with gadgets and cooking with my wife. You can read my wonderful wife, Maneet Gupta's blog here.
