Monisha Ghosh researches wireless communications networks and signal processing, such as wireless technologies for 5G cellular and next-generation Wi-Fi systems. Her work advances technology for 5G wireless, the Internet of Things, health analytics, and the emerging field of soil sensing. Prof. Ghosh helped develop the Thoreau sensor network, a series of 30 sensors that take real-time soil measurements of the University of Chicago campus. Her research will result in a benchmark of sensors, hardware, and data science that could help agricultural producers better manage soil and crops.
Prof. Ghosh has authored over 50 scientific papers and currently holds 50 patents. In addition to her role at the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering, she is an associate member of the Computer Science Department, an affiliate at Argonne National Laboratory and a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
