Directory

Anthony Rowe is a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. His research interests are in networked real-time embedded systems with a focus on low-power wireless communication. His most recent projects have related to large-scale sensing for critical infrastructure monitoring and building energy-efficiency. His past work has led to dozens of hardware and software systems, four best paper awards, and several widely adopted open-source research platforms. He earned a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon in 2010.

He is currently the director of the SRC/DARPA sponsored CONIX Research Center, which spans seven universities with the goal of exploring future distributed computing architectures. His past work has led to dozens of hardware and software systems, seven best paper awards, talks at venues like the World Economic Forum in Davos, and several widely adopted open-source research platforms. He received the Lutron Joel and Ruth Spira Excellence in Teaching Award in 2013, the CMU CIT Early Career Fellowship and the Steven Fenves Award for Systems Research in 2015, and the Dr. William D. and Nancy W. Strecker Early Career chair in 2016.
