Dr. Timothy Brown is a Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University in Rwanda, and participates in T/TI international projects. Since 1995 he has held faculty appointments at the University of Colorado at Boulder, most recently as Director of the Interdisciplinary Telecommunications Program. His current research funding includes NSF, FAA, DOE, and industry. Projects include the role of mobility in network control of unmanned aircraft, denial of service vulnerabilities in wireless protocols, spectrum policy frameworks for cognitive radios, and indoor wireless network performance. Research and teaching areas include wireless networking: ad hoc networks, cognitive radios, delay tolerant networks, controlled node mobility, wireless security. Research focuses on challenged wireless networks. He developed analytic results for the performance of randomly deployed radio systems, and efficient learning methods to control node mobility to improve network performance.
Dr. Brown has 20 years of experience in wireless systems with over 60 scholarly articles on novel radio architectures, wireless security, spectrum regulation, and wireless standards. He is a frequent speaker, he edits and publishes books and conducts research in ICT and specifically on spectrum usage and provision.
Dr. Brown has a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering (Thesis: Neural Network Design for Switching Network Control) and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from California Institute of Technology. He received many honors and awards in ICT and Telecommunications.
