Mingyan Liu Promoted at University of Michigan

ISR and HyNet alumna Mingyan Liu has been promoted to associate professor with tenure in the University of Michigan's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Mingyan received her MSSE degree in 1997 and her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 2000. She was advised by Professor John S. Baras (ECE/ISR) for both degrees.

Mingyan's research interests lie in communication networks performance analysis, network modeling and simulation, resource allocation, building energy-efficient/high-performance networking mechanisms for wireless sensor networks, mobile wireless ad hoc networks, and broadband satellite networks. She won a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award for "Capacity-Driven Design of Large-Scale Wireless Sensor Networks" in 2003.

Dr. Baras writes, "Mingyan is a truly outstanding researcher and educator. She has become a well recognized leader in wireless networks research, and has obtained several pace-setting results in network modeling and resource allocation. Among her unique talents I am particularly proud of her excellence in teaching and team work. It is worth noting that Mingyan is the first graduate of our ISR MSSE program to become a tenured professor at a leading research university. Her contributions to HyNet research were outstanding, especially in the Federated Lab consortium ATIRP and in our collaboration with industry, most notably with Hughes Network Systems."
