Martin Haenggi, the Frank M. Freimann Professor of Electrical Engineering and concurrent professor in the Department of Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Notre Dame, has been named editor-in-chief of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Transactions on Wireless Communications. Widely recognized as the top international journal in the area of wireless communications and networks, it is also one of the largest of the IEEE journals in terms of annual submissions, published papers. and the size of the editorial board.  

A faculty member since 2001, Haenggi directs the Emerging Wireless Architectures Laboratory. His research interests include wireless communications and networking, with an emphasis on cellular, heterogeneous, amorphous, ad hoc (D2D), cognitive and sensor (M2M) networks.  

Recognized as a leader in the application of stochastic geometry to the modeling, analysis, and design of wireless networks, Haenggi has devised several new mathematical methods for the interference characterization and performance analysis of wireless systems that are now in widespread use — including his work on general (non-Poisson) network models, the analysis of the impact of secrecy constraints in wireless networks, and the interpretation of interference as a correlated random field in space and time.

Haenggi, who is an IEEE Fellow and senior member of the Association for Computing Machinery, has authored or coauthored three books and more than 220 papers and served on the editorial boards of the Elsevier Journal of Ad Hoc Networks, the IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, and the Association for Computing Machinery Transactions on Sensor Networks.

He has also served as a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society in 2005-06, a Distinguished Speaker for the IEEE Communications Society in 2016, and was the keynote speaker at eight international conferences.

Among his many honors, Haenggi has received the ETH medal, a prestigious award for outstanding theses given by ETH Zurich, reserved for the top dissertations, for both his M.Sc. and Ph.D. theses. He also received the 2005 National Science Foundation Early Career Development (CAREER) award and the 2010 IEEE Communications Society Best Tutorial Paper Award.
