        Shwetak Patel, Computer Scientist | MacArthur Fellows Program

        In this interview, 2011 MacArthur Fellow Shwetak Patel discusses how he used his skills in computer science to develop devices that can detect and measure household energy consumption with the goal of saving energy and improving daily life. Patel's innovative approach uses existing household infrastructure and only requires the addition of a small number of wirelessly connected sensors. Patel devises simple, low-cost solutions that are easy to deploy, and is helping to make the buildings we live in more responsive to our needs. This resource is part of the MacArthur Fellows Program Collection.
