Directory

Yuvraj Agarwal is an associate professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon, and the director of SynergyLabs. His lab focuses on research at the intersection of hardware and software systems, and in the recent past his group has focused on energy efficiency, security and privacy as a central research theme. In additional to publications at competitive conferences (MobiSys, Ubicomp, SenSys, IPSN, NSDI, USENIX, Oakland, BuildSys, CHI), SynergyLab specifically strives to build and deploy systems that have real world impact and benefit society. His group leads research around smart buildings, systems for the Internet-of-Things (IoT), privacy and security, and have also had significant impact in mobile computing and energy efficient computing. Several of the systems that Yuvraj and his students have built have been deployed at scale on the UCSD and CMU campuses. The systems that he has built for studying privacy on mobile platforms have been used by hundreds of thousands of users and have had significant industrial impact. Yuvraj is a member of the IEEE, ACM and USENIX.
