J. Nicholas Laneman, professor of electrical engineering at the University of Notre Dame, has been awarded a 2019 Qualcomm Faculty Award (QFA) for research that is inspirational to graduate students while also encouraging new approaches in key areas of wireless technology.
The QFA program supports faculty research through a donation to their university in order to advance wireless communications research in academia and to strengthen Qualcomm’s engagement with faculty who are playing key roles in the development of top graduate students.
Laneman, who currently serves as the co-director of the Wireless Institute at Notre Dame and as associate chair for graduate studies in the Department of Electrical Engineering, joined the University in 2002.
His research interests encompass communications architecture — a blend of information theory, error-control coding, signal processing for communications, network protocols and hardware design — with an emphasis on wireless systems.
He is also a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the John J Reilly Center for Science, Technology and Values at the University.
