Sensing, People, and Networks Lab

at Washington University in St. Louis

The Sensing, People, and Networks (SPAN) Lab at the University of Utah conducts research on two topics: wireless networking, and the equity of engineered and automated sensing and decision systems. We have a history of augmenting the reliability, efficiency, and capabilities of networks using the radio as a sensing interface in addition to the communication interface. We also investigate how sensing and other "big data" systems and algorithms that affect the resources people are allocated can have both positive and negative effects on equity in society. Students in the SPAN Lab study wireless networking, statistical signal processing, and power and inequity, and these tools enable us to study the interaction of people, networks, and sensing systems in new ways that will lead to greater privacy, reliability, and equity of engineered systems.
