Shyam Gollakota joins UW CSE

We’re thrilled to announce that Shyam Gollakota will be joining the UW CSE faculty this fall, adding to the strength and vitality to our efforts in systems, networking, and security.

Shyam received his Ph.D. from MIT earlier this year, working with Dina Katabi.  His research has focused on improving the performance and security of wireless networks.   He has won two best paper awards at the ACM SIGCOMM conference (the leading conference in computer networking), one on security for implantable medical devices, and one on ZigZag, the first wireless receiver that can decode collisions of simultaneous transmissions without assumptions of synchronization, large differences in power, or special codes.
