Research and publications in cognitive networks and wireless communications
I am currently the Executive Director of the Commonwealth Cyber Initiative (CCI), and a Professor in the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech. I was previously the Professor of Telecommunications (personal chair) at Trinity College Dublin. Until March 2020, I served as the Director of CONNECT, the telecommunications research centre funded by the Science Foundation Ireland. My own 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 Science Foundation Ireland and the European Commission under Horizon 2020. Recent research sponsors also include NSF, 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.
