Prakash Ishwar, PhD, is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Systems Engineering in the College of Engineering and an Affiliate Professor of Computer Science in the College of Arts and Sciences at Boston University. He is a member of the Information and Data Sciences (IDS) Group of the ECE department, the Artificial Intelligence and Emerging Media (AIEM) group of the Hariri Institute, the Center for Information and Systems Engineering (CISE), and the Data Science Initiative at BU.

Professor Ishwar’s research interests include Statistical Signal Processing and Machine Learning, Network Information and Communications, Information Security, and Visual Information Processing and Analysis.

Professor Ishwar received the B. Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, in 1996, and the M.S. and PhD degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1998 and 2002 respectively. After working for two years as an Associate Specialist Researcher in the Electronics Research Laboratory and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley, he joined Boston University where he is can Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and an affiliated faculty member in the Information Systems and Sciences group, the Center for Information and Systems Engineering, and the Sensor Network Consortium.

He was awarded the 2000 Frederic T. and Edith F. Mavis College of Engineering Fellowship of the University of Illinois. He was a Senior Investigator and key driver on a 2003 NSF SENSORS award and he received the NSF CAREER award in December 2005. He served as the chair of exhibits and demonstrations at the 3rd IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Information Processing in Sensor Networks in 2004 and was a co-organizer of Berkeley-FuSe 2003, a mini-workshop on the fundamentals of sensor webs aimed at bringing together researchers from the signal processing, radar, communications, control, and networking communities working on various theoretical aspects of sensing and sensor networks.
