Rahul Mangharam is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. He also holds a secondary appointment in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences and is a founding member of the PRECISE Center. He directs the mLAB- Real-Time and Embedded Systems Lab at Penn. His interests are in real-time scheduling algorithms for networked embedded systems with applications in energy-efficient buildings, automotive systems, medical devices and industrial wireless control networks.

His group has won several awards in IPSN 2012, RTAS 2102, World Embedded Programming Competition 2010, Honeywell Industrial Wireless Award 2011, Google Zeitgeist Award 2011, Intel Innovators Award 2012, Intel Early Faculty Career Award 2012, NAE US Frontiers of Engineering 2012, Cornell Embedded Systems Cup 2012, Accenture Innovation Jockeys 2012 and NSF CAREER Award 2013.

He received his Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University where he also received his MS and BS. In 2002, he was a member of technical staff in the Ultra-Wide Band Wireless Group at Intel Labs. He was an international scholar in the Wireless Systems Group at IMEC, Belgium in 2003. He has worked on ASIC chip design at FORE Systems (1999) and Gigabit Ethernet at Apple Computer Inc. (2000). He was the Stephen J. Angelo Term Chair Assistant Professor at the University of Pennsylvania from 2008-2013.
