Speaker's Bio: 

Ashwin Ashok is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at GSU, where he leads research on mobile systems and the Internet of Things. Prior to this he was a postdoctoral research associate in ECE at Carnegie Mellon University under the mentorship of Professor Peter Steenkiste (CMU) in collaboration with Dr. Fan Bai (GM Research). While affiliated with the CMU-GM Continuous and Autonomous Driving Collaborative Research Lab (CRL) at CMU he developed cloud-computing systems for vehicular applications. Ashwin completed his Ph.D. in October 2014 at the Wireless Information Network Lab (WINLAB) at Rutgers University, where he worked under the guidance of Marco Gruteser, Narayan Mandayam, and Kristin Dana. His doctoral thesis developed a novel interdisciplinary concept called visual MIMO that explores the use of cameras and other optical arrays as receivers in a communication system. Ashwin interned at Qualcomm (NJ) for a summer working on Qualcomm’s Lumicast technology for visible light communication-based indoor positioning. Ashwin is an experimentalist and has keen interests in system design and prototyping. He loves tinkering with circuits, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi and plays cricket and badminton in his leisure
