|What's New||I've moved.|
The Internet of Everyday Things will bring a
trillion new wireless, embedded Internet hosts
online within a decade or two. I'm interested
in exploring how we should build devices and
software that survive and thrive in this
My research interests straddle the hardware/software interface and include systems, networking, and architecture. Recent focus areas include energy management, wireless networking, and embedded systems. I am also interested in emerging mobile sensing applications that cut across all of these areas.
|Broader Impacts||My work has been commercialized by Aginova, Arch Rock, Crossbow, and Moteiv, three of which are venture-funded U.C. Berkeley spinoffs.|
Almost all of my publications are online including my
technical reports, and
master's thesis. The
popular press has occasionally covered my work.
A few selected publications:
Energy in Networked Embedded Systems" [Slides],
"Energy Metering for
Free: Augmenting Switching Regulators for Real-Time
Neighbor Discovery and Rendezvous for Mobile Sensing Applications"
"Wireless ACK Collisions
Not Considered Harmful"
"A Building Block Approach
to Sensornet Systems"
"Design of a Wireless Sensor
Network Platform for Detecting Rare, Random, and Ephemeral

I recently started serving on some organizing and program
Previously, I was a fairly regular reviewer for Sensys, IPSN/SPOTS, TOSN and IEEE Pervasive Computing, and was a member of the SOSP'07 Shadow PC. I chaired the CSGSA Faculty Candidate Committee in 2008 and was a member in 2007. I also served as the systems-area graduate student on the CS graduate admissions committee. Along with Karl Chen and Dilip Antony Joseph, I used to co-organize the CS Systems Lunch.
|Calendar||Trying to avoid travel and commitments (somewhat unsuccessfully).|
|Coursework||At Berkeley, I've taken courses in computer science (systems, security, networks, algorithms) and the management of technology.|
|Biographical||Prabal Dutta is a doctoral student in the Computer Science Division of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences Department at the University of California, Berkeley, where he is advised by David Culler and Scott Shenker. His research is funded through a Graduate Research Fellowship from the National Science Foundation, a Microsoft Research Fellowship, and a Graduate Student Researcher appointment supported by the National Science Foundation and the DARPA Networked Embedded Systems Technology (NEST) program. He works in the Berkeley Wireless Embedded Systems (WEBS) Group. He is a member of the ACM, IEEE, and USENIX professional societies and was elected to Eta Kappa Nu, Upsilon Pi Epsilon, Tau Beta Pi, and Phi Kappa Phi honor societies. A (not so) recent CV is available.|
