Ph.D., Computer Science, University of California, Los Angeles (2004), M.S., Computer Science, University of Southern California, Los Angeles (2000), B.Tech., Computer Science, Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (1998). Professor Ganesan joined the faculty in the University of Massachusetts Amherst College of Information and Computer Sciences in 2004 as an Assistant Professor. Professor Ganesan has been a member of the Center for Embedded Networked Sensing at UCLA, Intel Research at Berkeley and the Mobile Information and Communication Systems Center at EPFL, Switzerland.


Professor Ganesan's interests are in systems, networking and data processing issues in Wireless Sensor Networks. His previous research has included building a distributed multi-resolution data storage system for data-rich sensor networks, analytical studies of optimal placement of sensor nodes for data collection and empirical measurement of communication dynamics in large-scale sensor networks of many hundreds of sensor nodes.
