ng society in the next decade," said Prith Banerjee, senior vice president of research at HP and director of HP Labs. "WPI has demonstrated outstanding achievement and we look forward to collaborating with it in this dynamic area of research."

Currently, Rundensteiner is working with an infectious disease specialist at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center on a two-year pilot program to use her streaming data analysis technology in conjunction with wireless tracking hardware to solve a longstanding public health problem: the transmission of bacteria in healthcare settings through poor hygiene habits. The system, in real time, will monitor where healthcare worker go and whether they visit hand-washing stations at appropriate times, issuing an audible or visual prompt, if needed. Real-time processing of streaming data will allow for the continuous tracking of healthcare workers' compliance.

"The HP Innovation Research program is exciting because it allows faculty and students to work side by side with top researchers and developers at HP Labs on problems that are relevant to industry and to society at large," Rundensteiner said. "The complex event analytics problem we are tackling together is particularly satisfying, as it presents an interesting technical challenge and an opportunity to develop solutions that could have enormous societal benefits."

A member of the WPI faculty since 1996, Rundensteiner has established an original and influential body of research on a broad array or topics within data processing. Her current work on managing and processing continuously streaming data is redefining the notion of data management. Her pioneering work has been supported by a steady stream of external awards from the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Department of Energy, and a number of industry and government laboratories, including IBM, Verizon Labs, GTE, and HP.

She has over 300 publications, includ
