Professor & Vice Chairman Research Group: Networked and Embedded Systems Laboratory

Biography
Mani Srivastava received both the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1987 and 1992, respectively. His M.S. project was on automatic compilation of CMOS bit-slice datapaths as part of the Lager silicon compiler for DSP VLSI, while his Ph.D. dissertation was on hardware-software rapid prototyping and co-design for embedded DSP and control applications. Prior to joining the UCLA Electrical Engineering Department faculty in 1996, Dr. Srivastava worked on mobile and wireless networking at the Networked Computing Research Department at AT&T Bell Labs in Murray Hill, NJ (now Lucent Technologies - Bell Labs Innovations).

Prof. Srivastava holds five patents for: the method for call establishment and rerouting in mobile computing networks; medium access control and air interface subsystems for an indoor wireless ATM network; wireless adapter architecture for mobile computing; scheduling in wireless access protocols based on battery power level; and mobile host roaming in ATM networks. He has published extensively on wireless networking, low-power systems, and embedded system design tools. He is a member of the IEEE and of the ACM.



Since joining the EE Department, Prof. Srivastava's research and teaching have focussed on architecture, algorithms, and design optimization techniques for wireless networked and embedded systems, and DSP VLSIs. In recent years his main focus has been on mobile and wireless multimedia systems, and distributed wireless sensor networks, with emphasis on issues such as power-aware computing and communications, and quality of service.
