Title: Experiential Research at the MORSE Studio
Date: 2018-12-10 10:30am-12:00pm
Location: R309, CSIE
Speaker: Prof. Ashwin Ashok, Georgia State University
Hosted by: Prof. Hsin-Mu (Michael) Tsai


In this talk, I will provide an overview of the research activities of my group at MORSE Studio in Georgia State University (GSU). I direct the MORSE Studio where we focus on emerging MObile and Robotic Systems through Experiential research. I will discuss some of the ongoing research work in areas of Visible Light Communication (VLC), Underwater robotics and Assistive technologies. In addition, I will discuss the strategic focus of the department of Computer Science at GSU and potential opportunities for inter-university collaboration.
Dr. Ashwin Ashok is an Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Computer Science at Georgia State University. Dr. Ashok directs the MORSE Studio at GSU that focuses on the science and engineering of MObile and Robotic Systems through Experiential research. His group focuses on research problems that encompass emerging technologies in mobile and wireless communication, computing and sensing. His research work spans areas in visible light and camera communications, mobile and wearable computing, vehicular networking, robotics and computer vision. He is a recipient of NSF CRII Award in 2018 for developing a novel architecture for high speed visible light communication. He recently has received the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society research award (RAS-SIGHT) for developing robotic technologies for humanitarian purposes.
Prior to his GSU appointment he was a postdoctoral research associate in ECE at Carnegie Mellon University under the mentorship of Prof. Peter Steenkiste (CMU) and in collaboration with Dr. Fan Bai (GM labs) where he conducted research on building cloud computing systems for vehicles. He received his Ph.D. from Rutgers University where he conducted research in affiliation with the Wireless Information Network Lab (WINLAB) in developing a novel concept of using cameras for communication using the Visual MIMO concept.
