Michael Neely, PhD - Associate Professor
Research Interests:

Mike's research is in the area of data networking with applications to satellite systems,wireless systems, computer networks, and hybrid networks with both wireless and wireline components. He is interested in the analysis and design of these systems, as well as the development of network layer control strategies that fully utilize the physical capabilities of each network element. This work includes dynamic scheduling, routing, and resource allocation in networks with time varying channel conditions and adaptive transmission rates. His research considers issues of network capacity, network optimization, and network control, and explores fundamental limits on delay, throughput, and implementation complexity.
Biographical Information:

PhD in Electrical Engineering, 2003, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA.

Michael J. Neely received B.S. degrees in both Electrical Engineering and Mathematics from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 1997. He then received a 3 year Department of Defense NDSEG Fellowship for graduate study in Electrical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he received an M.S. degree in 1999
and is currently finishing his PhD. During the Summer of 2002, he worked as an intern in the Distributed Sensor Networks group at Draper Labs in Cambridge. His research interests are in the areas of satellite and wireless networks, ad-hoc wireless networks, and queueing theory. Michael is a member of Tau Beta Pi and Phi Beta Kappa.
