Welcome to Ravi Prakash's home page

Ravi Prakash photographI am a professor in the Department of Computer Science and the Collegium V Honors College at the University of Texas at Dallas. I received my Ph.D. in Computer and Information Science from The Ohio State University. My Ph.D. advisor was Professor Mukesh Singhal. My research interests include Field-of-View prediction and caching for 360-degree videos, coexistence of wireless networks (including WiFi networks) in unlicensed and shared frequency bands, sensor networking, mobile computing and distributed algorithms. I am a member of the UT Dallas Faculty Senate and Academic Council, and currently serve as the Speaker of the Academic Senate. In the past I have served as an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing and as the President and Secretary of the IEEE Dallas Section. When not watching highly civilized and calming serials like Narcos, GoT, Ozark, Sacred Games, Mirzaput, I like to to listen to a variety of music including Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Charlie Parker, k.d. lang. In a different era I used to have enough time to watch movies, especially those directed by Martin Scoresese and/or featuring Robert De Niro.
