Bharat Bhargava is a professor of Computer Science at Purdue University since 1984. Professor Bhargava's research involves both theoretical and experimental studies in secure and reliable distributed systems. His research group has implemented a robust and adaptable distributed database system called RAID, an adaptable video conferencing system and is involved in networking research using ideas of active routers, diffserv, and mobileIP. Prof. Bhargava has conducted experiments in large scale distributed systems, communications, authentication, key management, fault-tolerance and Quality of Service. His current interests are in secure mobile systems, multimedia security and QoS as a security parameter.
Professor Bhargava was the chairman of the IEEE Symposium on Reliable and Distributed Systems held at Purdue in October 1998. Professor Bhargava is on the editorial board of three international journals. In the 1988 IEEE Data Engineering Conference, he and John Riedl received the best paper award for their work on "A Model for Adaptable Systems for Transaction Processing." Professor Bhargava is a fellow of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and Institute of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers. He has been awarded the charter Gold Core Member distinction by IEEE Computer Society for his distinguished service. He received Outstanding Instructor Awards, from the Purdue chapter of the ACM in 1996 and 1998.
