Dr. Thomas Schmid, a Post Doctoral Researcher in CSE, has been named a 2010 Computing Innovation Fellow (CIFellow) by The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) and the Computing Research Association (CRA).
Dr. Schmid received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2009. His research interests involve the hardware-software boundary and its impact on energy consumption, including software radios, large scale sensing system architectures, and networking, with a focus on wireless embedded systems. His work and collaboration has won several awards including a DAC Student Design Competition and three best paper awards at SenSys, WUWNet, and IPSN respectively. He works with Asst. Prof. Prabal Dutta.
The competitive CIFellow program is sponsored by the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) and the Computing Research Association (CRA), with funding from the National Science Foundation, and allows new PhD graduates to obtain one-to-two year postdoctoral positions at host organizations including universities, industrial research laboratories, and other organizations that advance the field of computing and its positive impact on society. The goals of the CIFellows project are to retain new PhDs in research and teaching and to support intellectual renewal and diversity in the computing fields at U.S. organizations.
