Haenggi Named Editor-in-Chief for 
IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications

January 17, 2017

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers has named Martin Haenggi the editor-in-chief of 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.

Three Notre Dame Faculty Named IEEE Fellows

December 6, 2013

Danny Z. Chen, professor of computer science and engineering; Martin Haenggi, professor of electrical engineering; and J. Nicholas Laneman, associate professor of electrical engineering, have been named fellows of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

New Book Is First to Cover Spatial Modeling and Analysis of 
Wireless Networks at Introductory Level

February 15, 2013

A new book, “Stochastic Geometry for Wireless Networks,” by Martin Haenggi, a professor of electrical engineering and concurrent professor of applied and computational mathematics and statistics at the University of Notre Dame, combines theory and hands-on analytical techniques to guide readers through the modeling and analysis of wireless network performance.

Haenggi Secures $444,499 NSF Award to Analyze and Engineer Interference

October 10, 2012

The Cisco Visual Networking Index (VNI) 2010-2015 explains that the explosive growth of 160 percent for mobile data traffic has put tremendous pressure on existing mobile spectrum and networks. These demands keep growing exponentially, while the available spectrum remains scarce. As a result, cellular, WiFi, mesh and cognitive networks are increasingly interference-limited.
