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.
