Sumit Rangwala
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."
Theodore Roosevelt
Brief Biography

Prior to that, I was a Post Doctoral Associate at WINLAB working with Prof. Dipankar Raychaudhuri.
I completed my doctorate under the guidance of Prof. Ramesh Govindan at Embedded Networks Laboratory in Computer Science at the University of Southern California and my B.E. in Computer Engineering from S.G.S.I.T.S, India. Before joining USC, I spent a year at Texas Instruments, Research and Development Center, Bangalore, India.
My current interests are distributed systems for real-time computing, protocol design, network virtulization, with increasing interest in data mining. I am working/have worked on smart grid management systems, data center virtualization, cognitive radio networks, 802.11-based wireless mesh networks (congestion control in particular), and wireless sensor networks (embedded networks).
