Senior Research Scientist
Research Associate Professor
I received my M.Sc. degree in EE from the
Technical University of Budapest
in 1989 and a Ph.D. degree in EE from
Vanderbilt University in 1995.
I am currently a Research Associate Professor at the
Engineering and Computer Science Department and a Senior Research Scientist at
Institute for Software Integrated Systems (ISIS) at Vanderbilt University.
I am team teaching
CS 103 Introductory Programming for Engineers and Scientists with Prof. Fitzpatrick.
Wednesday: 10:00-11:00 or by appointment

My main research area is wireless sensor networks (WSN). My team has developed the first
WSN-based countersniper system.
The latest version is soldier wearable and not only does it localize the shooter very accurately, but it can
also tell the caliber and the weapon type. A
recent paper describes the system in detail. Our
radio interferometric positioning approach has gained much attention and resulted in the
Best Paper Award at the ACM Sensys 2007 conference.
My other focus is Model Integrated Computing. Our widely used, open source software tool, the
Generic Modeling Environment
is a configurable toolkit for creating domain-specific modeling and program synthesis environments.
