Welcome to the IMPACT mobile computing lab at Arizona State University. We are located in new quarters at the Brickyard on Mill Avenue, Tempe.

Our research focuses on developing protocols and middleware for pervasive and mobile computing applications.

See an introductory video showcasing some of our research here.

Current research interests include sensor and biosensor networking, wireless and sensor network security, residential network security, energy-efficient multicasting, convergecasting and data aggregation, and MAC layer optimization for sensor networks, among others.

See the brochure for an overview of our lab.
