My name is Colleen Josephson, and I research wireless communication and sensing systems, with a focus on how we can leverage sensing for sustainability. I am an Assistant Professor at UC Santa Cruz, and a research scientist at VMware. I also chair the Societal and Economic Needs working group and co-chair the GreenG Working Group within the ATIS NextG Alliance. I received my PhD in Electrical Engineering at Stanford in 2020. My advisors were Sachin Katti and Keith Winstein.

In my past lives I was a wireless firmware engineer at Cisco Meraki, and an undergraduate/MEng student at MIT. I also served as president of the Alumni Board for the TEP Xi (Xi Fellowship) coed fraternity at MIT.

My hobbies include petting dogs, yoga, baking, gardening, playing the saxophone and riding my motorcycle.
