New Nanonetworks Executive Committee

Announcing the new executive committee of the IEEE ComSoc Emerging Technical Subcommittee on Nanoscale, Molecular, and Quantum Networking:

Chair: Andrew W. Eckford is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, York University.  A graduate of the Royal Military College of Canada and the University of Toronto, he has written numerous papers on the application of information theory to molecular communication, including its application to microfluidic and lab-on-chip systems. He holds an adjunct professorship at the University of Toronto.

Vice-chair (Standards liaison): Stephen F. Bush is a researcher in Algorithmic Communications Network Theory at the GE Global Research Center. In the nanoscale networking field, Steve's research focuses on networks formed by carbon nanotubes. He is the author of the recent book Nanoscale Communication Networks.

Vice-chair (Industrial liaison):  Sanjay Goel is an Associate Professor in the Information Technology Management Department at the University at Albany, SUNY.  He has written numerous papers on the topic of self-organization in nanonetworks, and was the TPC chair of the 2009 International ICST Conference on Nano-Networks.

Vice-chair (Region 10 liaison): Jian-Qin Liu is an expert researcher at National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, Japan. He received his Ph.D. degree in control science and engineering from Central South University, China, in 1997 and his Ph.D. degree in informatics from Kyoto University, Japan, in 2006. His research interests include new generation networks, bioinformatics, and nanotechnology. He is the first/sole author of three books, of which the latest is Biomolecular Computation for Bionanotechnology, and more than 40 papers published in academic journals.

Vice-chair (Awards liaison): Michael J. Moore is a researcher at Osaka University. He is a noted expert on molecular communication, having co-authored the fundamental paper in the field. He has recently published papers related to estimation and information theory in molecular communication systems.

Vice-chair (Senior advisor): Tatsuya Suda is among a few researchers who initiated research in molecular communication.  He has co-authored many of the foundational papers in the field.   He has also made significant research contributions in the areas of high speed networks.   The positions he holds and has held include the President of the University Netgroup, Inc., a Professor in the School of Information and Computer Science at the University of California, Irvine, a Program Director at the National Science Foundation, and a number of visiting research positions.  IEEE Fellow.
