Madhumita Mallick

Hi! I am Madhumita. I am a PhD student under Dr. Niloy Gaguly in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur from July, 2015. My research interests lie in the field of Internet of Things and Mobile Computing.

Activity Recognition in Smart Homes

Human activity detection in IoT enabled smart homes is a potentially powerful tool in modern health-care. Once detected, these activities of daily living (ADLs) can be used to derive indicators of a person’s well-being and thus provide remote health monitoring.

Storage Optimization in Smart Homes

In IoT, there are a large number of perception devices that continuously and automatically collect information, leading to a rapid expansion in data scale. In order to manage such huge data scale, we try to focus on efficient management of storage space by leveraging the different properties of internet of things.
