Biographical

Dr. Radu Stoleru is currently an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, and heading the Laboratory for Embedded & Networked Sensor Systems (LENSS) - official and facebook links.

Dr. Stoleru's research interests are in deeply embedded wireless sensor systems, distributed systems, embedded computing, and computer networking. He is the recepient of the NSF CAREER Award in 2013. Dr. Stoleru received his Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Virginia in 2007, under Professor John A. Stankovic. While at the University of Virginia, Dr. Stoleru received from the Department of Computer Science the Outstanding Graduate Student Research Award for 2007. He has authored or co-authored over 60 conference and journal papers with over 2,200 citations (Google Scholar). He is currently serving as an editorial board member for 3 international journals and has served as technical program committee member on numerous international conferences. A long time ago, when he used to have spare time, this is what he did for fun (or not).
