I work on wireless networking, primarily at the interface between algorithms, network protocols and radio reality. At the moment, my main projects are vehicular and mobile network architecture, joint optimization of physical-layer and MAC processes, and emulation of RF signal propagation as a tool for networking research. I’m guilty of occasional digressions into security, formal logic, programming languages, and computer science education.

For a look at what I doing until recently (though it was out of date, then, too) take a look at my University of Colorado page.



Advisors: Douglas Sicker, Dirk Grunwald. Dissertation committee: Timothy X. Brown, Manuel Laguna, Sanjay Shakkottai. Some people I’ve worked with over the years: Peter Steenkiste, Caleb Phillips, Kevin Bauer, Gary Yee, Michael Buettner, Fan Bai (GM Research), Richard Han, Michal Young, Reza Rejaie, Jun Li. Students I’m co-advising or have supervised: Xiaohui Wang (ECE Ph.D.), Joel Feinstein (ECE M.S.), Sundeep Konudula (ECE undergraduate), Anirudh Reddy Pesaladinne (ECE undergraduate).

Notes to Students

Prospective students: Please apply through the standard channels.

Current students: If you’re interested in anything I’m working on, come talk to me!

Also: I am not the Eric Anderson in the School of Design! And I’m not this guy either, though I do admire the beard.


Here is my CV.


In recent years, my work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Laboratory for Telecommunication Sciences, and General Motors.
