Cyber-physical systems (CPS), emerging from close interactions between physical, computational and control sub-components, are increasingly being used to address emerging complex problems in several domains including healthcare, precision agriculture and infrastructure monitoring. This talk will present the IMPACT Lab’s decade-long research accomplishments in the domain of safe, secure and sustainable CPS with focus on “Creating Humane Technologies for Ever-Changing World.” Examples of theory, techniques and tools developed for pervasive healthcare and green cloud computing will be used to illustrate how melding of the physical and the physiological with the cyber and the virtual can help to engineer transformative computational solutions suitable for a deeply networked human aspiring to live safely and securely in a sustainable society.


Sandeep Kumar S. Gupta is the Interim Director of the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering and a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering and heads the IMPACT (Intelligent Mobile and Pervasive Applications and Computing Technologies) Lab ( He was the Chair of the CSE program and of the Computer Engineering graduate program at ASU. The hallmark of his academic career has been fundamental and novel contributions to various basic and applied subfields of CSE including HPC, compilers, mobile and pervasive computing, body sensor networks and sustainable (green) computing. In doing so, he has collaborated with researchers from various disciplines (EE, MAE, medical) and institutions (FDA and AZ DOT), garnered research funding from various federal and state sources (NSF, NIH, SFAz) and industry (Intel Corp, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman). Gupta has won various awards (best paper, poster, best CIDSE senior researcher) and his work has been highlighted in various technology blogs and magazines (Discovery Channel, MIT Technology Review). He has integrated research with graduate and undergraduate teaching and contributed by designing and teaching new courses in mobile computing, green and sustainable computing, wireless sensor networking and ubiquitous and pervasive computing. Gupta has publishing two books (Fundamentals of Mobile and Pervasive Computing, McGraw Hill and Body Sensor Networks, Cambridge U. Press) and several book chapters, research articles and invention filings. He has mentored students from various disciplines (EE, MAE, CS, CEN) who have joined world class companies (Google, Intel, Microsoft, Samsung, Xerox Research) and academic intuitions (UPenn, WPI, ASU).  He has served the research community through organizing workshops (Mobile Medical App at ACM Sensys), tutorials (ACM Mobicom, FDA) and conferences, guest editing special issues of leading journals (IEEE Proceedings, TKDE, TC), serving on program committees (ICDCS, ACM Wireless Health) and on the editorial boards (IEEE TPDS, SUSCOM). Gupta is founding EIC of Elsevier Smart Health. He has designed and taught the Barrett Summer Program for middle school students and participated in programs such as BRAID and MGE@MSA to increase diversity in computer science and engineering education.
