Kanianthra M. (Mani) Chandy
Simon Ramo Professor of Computer Science, Emeritus
Research interests: distributed systems, verification and validation of concurrent systems, software packages for analyzing streams of data.
Professor Chandy builds and analyzes systems that sense and respond to changes. He is currently working on systems that sense and respond to: (a) seismic events, (b) threat events such as the introduction of nuclear radiation material, (c) medical events such a fetal distress, and (d) events in the power grid. The systems use sensor networks, cloud computing and event-driven architecture. The theory is based on optimization, control, machine learning and game theory.
