Deepak Ganesan is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science at UMASS Amherst. He is the Director of the Massachusetts AI and Technology Center for Connected Care in Aging and Alzheimer's Disease (MassAITC), a multidisciplinary initiative spanning UMass Amherst, Brigham and Womens Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, Brandeis University and Northeastern University and also directs the Center for Personalized Health Monitoring (CPHM) at UMass Amherst. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from UCLA in 2004 and his bachelors in Computer Science from IIT, Madras in 1998. He is an ACM Fellow.


My current research focuses on ultra-low power wireless communication, novel platforms and algorithms for mobile and wearable health sensing, learning and inference on multi-modal sensor data, and micro-powered sensors. My current projects include sensing via smart textiles, smart eyeglasses, backscatter communication, and mobile health. I co-lead the MOSAIC Research Group.
