Research and publications in cognitive networks and wireless communications
I am currently the Professor of Telecommunications (personal chair) at Trinity College Dublin. There, I am a co-Principal Investigator of CONNECT, the telecommunications research centre funded by the Science Foundation Ireland. I also hold a research position in the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech, where I was a tenured/tenure-track faculty member from 1998 to 2014. My research focuses on distributed and adaptive resource management in wireless networks, and in particular cognitive radio networks and the application of game theory to wireless networks. I am currently a principal investigator on research projects funded by the National Science Foundation, the Science Foundation Ireland, and the European Commission under Framework Programme 7 and Horizon 2020. Recent research sponsors also include DARPA, the Office of Naval Research, Intel, and Microsoft Research.
I am an IEEE Communications Society Distinguished Lecturer (2015-2018). I am a Fellow of Trinity College Dublin, and a Fellow of the IEEE, for contributions to cognitive networking and to resource management in wireless networks.
