research overview

  • Dr. Bennett's research interests currently center in ICT for development: how to use computer science to help alleviate poverty and improve the quality of life of those in the developing world. Prior work focused broadly in the area of distributed systems, and more narrowly in two areas: distributed information management - how to access and share heterogeneous information securely and reliably from many locations; and distributed robotic macrosensors - how to locate, track and characterize both discrete (e.g., a vehicle) and diffuse (e.g., an airborne chemical plume) targets.
