Brief Bio

John N. Daigle is Director, Center for Wireless Communications, and Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Mississippi, Oxford. He was formerly a Principal Engineer for the MITRE Corporation in McLean, Virginia, where he was responsible for research direction in the MITRE Washington Networking Technical Center. His experience in electrical communications dates back to 1970 and includes a combined eleven years at Bell Labs, NCR, and MITRE as well as two years in the USAF Security Service. Prof. Daigle has taught in a wide variety of areas related to computing and communications including elementary to advanced graduate level courses in computer architecture, probablistic modeling, mobile and wireless communications, analog and digital communications, and computer communication systems and protocols. His research results have been published in leading IEEE technical conferences and IEEE and ORSA journals. He is also the author of the text books Queueing Theory for Telecommunications, published by Addison-Wesley and Queueing Theory with Applications to Packet Telecommunication, published by Springer-Science+Business Media. Prof. Daigle is a Fellow of the IEEE and is active in that institute's activities. He has served as Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Network and IEEE Communication Surveys and Tutorials. He was formerly an Editor for IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking and an Associate Editor of Operations Research. He was formerly Director of Education of the IEEE Communications Society and has previously served on that society's Board of Governors. He is a past chairman of the Society's Technical Committee on Computer Communications, and he has served on the technical program committees of numerous IEEE conferences and workshops. He holds BS and MS degrees in electrical engineering from Louisiana Tech University and VPI & SU, respectively. His doctorate, from Columbia University, is in operations research. Prof. Daigle has received the 2004 TCCC Outstanding Service Award form the IEEE Communication Society's Technical Committee on Computer Communications in recognition of his long-time contributions and service to the TCCC.
