Dr. Stephen Howard works to automate the management of distributed computing systems, and recently has developed an interest in wireless sensor networks. These networks consist of motes, small sensing devices whose tiny size and need for energy efficiency are forcing researchers to rethink traditional approaches to hardware, software, and network design.
