Gabe A. Cohn is a Researcher at Microsoft Research in the Medical Devices Group in Redmond, Washingtion. Dr. Cohn’s research focuses on (1) designing and implementing ultra-low-power embedded sensing systems, (2) leveraging physical phenomena to enable new sensing modalities for human-computer interaction, and (3) developing sensor systems targeted at realizing immediate change in high-impact application domains. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 2014 from the University of Washington, where he was advised by Shwetak Patel. He was awarded the Microsoft Research Ph.D. Fellowship in 2012, the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship in 2010, and 6 Best Paper awards and nominations. He is a co-founder of SNUPI Technologies, a sensor and services company built around his thesis work on the SNUPI ultra-low-power wireless sensor network, and acquired by Sears in 2015. He received his B.S. with honors in Electrical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology in 2009, where he specialized in embedded systems, computer architectures, and digital VLSI.
