Team

The Waggle team is diverse.  Computationally sophisticated, robust, and secure sensor networks must be designed as a partnership with the science teams deploying them.  Our team joins expertise from high-performance computing and electrical engineering to urban science and climate modeling.

Students!

We also owe a lot to visiting students, who have helped enormously with design and development during each summer.
