Research

research overview

  • Dr. Mishra's research interests include Edge Computing, Cybersafety, Internet of Things, mobile computing, pervasive computing and dependable computing. His research addresses both infrastructure based systems such as the Internet and mobile, resource-constrained networks such as wireless networks, Internet of Things, sensor networks and cellular networks. Specific research subareas include (1) developing system support to build context-aware applications at the edge; (2) misuse of Internet, e.g. hate speech in Arabic social media, subverting democratic process through Internet misuse, and cyberbullying in online social networks; (3) security and privacy in smart cities; (4) building socio-technical systems in environmental justice communities to improve health and well being; and (5) improving user experience in online games.
