Biography

Dr. Brano Kusy is a principal research scientist and Group Leader of the Distributed Sensing Systems in CSIRO. His research is on the new frontiers in networked embedded systems, mobile and wearable computing, and Internet of Things. His work has focused on scalability and energy efficiency of resource-constrained distributed systems and algorithms for coordinated control, spatio-temporal synchronization, reliable wireless communications, on-device machine learning, and adaptive sampling. Brano has applied wireless sensing technologies across several domains, including behavior sensing of wildlife, pasture intake of livestock; high-granularity sensing of user comfort in commercial buildings; surface mine rehabilitation; and scalable underwater environmental surveys.

Brano is an internationally respected scientist. He has served as the General Chair of IPSN’20, is regularly involved in the Program Committees of top-ranked international conferences ACM SenSys, ACM/IEEE IPSN, EWSN, IEEE MASS, IEEE ICDCS and has served on the TinyOS Core Working Group. His publications have more than 6500 citations and an h-index of 29 and his work on Flooding Time-Synchronization Protocol won the prestigious “Test of Time Award” from ACM SensSys conference. Prior to his work at CSIRO, Brano has obtained a Masters degree in Computer Science from Comenius University, Slovakia, a PhD degree in Computer Science from Vanderbilt University, USA, and worked as a postdoctoral fellow with Prof. Leo Guibas at Stanford University between 2007 and 2009.
