I'm Kurtis Heimerl. I work on technology for developing regions with Professor Eric Brewer in the TIER group, as well as with Professor Tapan Parikh in the Represent group. You can reach me at email@example.com.
Here are my publications and CV.
My thesis topic is the The Village Base Station(VBTS), a low-cost, low-power GSM basestation (based off OpenBTS). Our goal is to provide community cellular: local, community-owned cellular networks in areas without existing cellular coverage. Write-ups of our progress are here and press available here
I moonlight as a developer and open-source community manager at Range Networks, supporting the open release of OpenBTS.
Lastly, I have a few older projects which have completed. These include PANTS/NetAPI, a modern sockets implementation, and mPhone, a message-oriented phone system.
I taught CS194-22 "Cellphones as a Computing Platform" Spring 2012. The website is here
My Master's thesis was a project called Metamouse (not to be confused with this), which allows for more equitable sharing of existing educational content. You can see a video demonstration here. I also gave a CITRIS talk on this research which you can see here.
I also worked on the python implementation of the DTN bundle protocol.
