Publications

We strive to publish in highly competitive venues such as ACM SenSys, ACM/IEEE IPSN, ACM CHI, ACM UbiComp, among others. Sometimes, we succeed, other times we try harder. Our goal is to publish research work that makes a difference. To make it specific and measurable, we have set a goal for ourselves:

Maintain an h5-index of 10 or higher, i.e., 10+ papers published in past five calendar years will each have a citation of 10+. (My current h5-index for 2010-2014 is 15.)

Google Scholar Citations: 3,400+ (see Google Scholar profile)
