Biography: Anupam Joshi is a Professor of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at UMBC. Earlier, he was an Assistant Professor in the CECS department at the University of Missouri, Columbia. He obtained a B. Tech degree in Electrical Engineering from IIT Delhi in 1989, and a Masters and Ph.D. in Computer Science from Purdue University in 1991 and 1993 respectively. His research interests are in the broad area of networked computing and intelligent systems. His primary focus has been on data management for mobile computing systems in general, and most recently on data management and security in pervasive computing and sensor environments. He has created agent based middleware to support discovery, composition, and secure access of services/data over both infrastructure based (e.g. 802.11, cellular) and ad-hoc wireless networks (e.g. Bluetooth). He is also interested in Semantic Web and Data/Web Mining, where he has worked on personalizing the web space using a combination of agents and soft computing. His other interests include networked HPCC. He has published over 50 technical papers, and has obtained research support from NSF, NASA, DARPA, DoD, IBM, AetherSystens, HP, AT&T and Intel. He has presented tutorials in conferences, served as guest editor for special issues for IEEE Personal Comm., Comm. ACM etc., and served as an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions of Fuzzy Systems from 99-03. At UMBC, Joshi teaches courses in Operating Systems, Mobile Computing, Networking, and Web Mining. He is a member of IEEE, IEEE-CS, and ACM.
