Welcome to Ravi Prakash's home page
I am a professor in the Department of Computer Science and the Collegium V Honors College at the University of Texas at Dallas. I received my Ph.D. in Computer and Information Science from The Ohio State University. My Ph.D. advisor was Professor Mukesh Singhal. My research interests include wireless networking, sensor networking, mobile computing and distributed algorithms. I am a member of the Distributed Systems Laboratory at UT Dallas. I am the Chairman of the IEEE Dallas Section, and a member of the UT Dallas Faculty Senate and Academic Council. In the past I have served as an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing and as the Secretary of the IEEE Dallas Section. When not watching Cyberchase, Word Girl, Curious George, Electric Company, etc. in the company of my kids, I like to to listen to a variety of music including Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Charlie Parker, k.d. lang. In a different era I used to have enough time to watch movies, especially those directed by Martin Scoresese and/or featuring Robert De Niro. Now, I live on a steady diet of Pixar movies, thanks to my kids.
