Mani Srivastava received the PhD degree in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of California at Berkeley in 1992. Currently, he is a professor on the Electrical Engineering Faculty at the University of California at Los Angeles where he directs the Networkedand Embedded Systems Laboratory ( http://nesl.ee.ucla.edu). He is also associated with the UCLA Center for Embedded Networked Sensing (CENS), a US National Science Foundation (NSF) Science Technology Center. He coleads the systems area research at CENS, and is also a deputy director of the center. Prior to joining UCLA in 1996, for five years he was a member of the Networked Computing Research Department at the Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, New Jersey. His current interests are in embedded sensor and actuator networks, wireless and mobile systems, embedded system, power-aware computing and communications, and ubiquitous computing. He has published more than 125 papers and book chapters in these areas, and has received five US patents. He currently serves on the editorial boards of the IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing and the ACM Transactions on Sensor Networking, and has been program cochair for ACM MobiHoc '03, ACM SenSys '03, and IEEE/ACM IPSN '05. He is a senior member of the IEEE, and has been a recipient of the US NSF CAREER Award, the Okawa Foundation Grant, and the President of India's Gold Medal. He is a senior member of the IEEE.
