Nick Laneman

Professor Nick Laneman was the featured speaker at the February NDnano networking lunch meeting. Dr. Laneman is a professor in Notre Dame’s Department of Electrical Engineering, co-director of Notre Dame’s Wireless Institute, and director of SpectrumX, an NSF Spectrum Innovation Center.

The presentation began with an overview of the Wireless Institute, including major research areas and affiliated faculty. Next, he introduced the recently awarded SpectrumX Center, a National Science Foundation (NSF) Spectrum Innovation Center. SpectrumX is funded by a five-year, $25 million grant from the NSF. The Center is led by the University of Notre Dame and consists of 41 researchers and staff from 27 universities. SpectrumX is the world’s largest academic hub where all radio spectrum stakeholders can innovate, collaborate, and contribute to maximize social welfare of the radio frequency spectrum. Finally, Dr. Laneman wrapped up with ideas for collaborations with NDnano affiliated faculty, including new, cooperative ideas to enhance Notre Dame’s impact and provide world-leading educational opportunities for students in wireless research.

NDnano sponsors monthly networking meetings to provide a forum for faculty and staff to discuss recent research, probe new ideas, and connect with new collaborators. Visit the NDnano Events page to learn about future networking sessions.
