Melodia joins engineering faculty
While the end-of-the-semester crunch is bearing down on everyone in the university community, Tommaso Melodia, who joined the UB faculty this fall as an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, says a new home, a new job and a new baby all within the past few months have made the time since his arrival at UB a constant whirlwind of activity.
"I'm working on so-called ‘wireless sensor networks'—basically wireless networks of tiny devices that are resource-constrained in terms of processing capabilities, communication capabilities and battery power," he says. "I'm fascinated by problems like the self-organization of these devices—designing algorithms that will allow these devices to self-organize in an optimally performing network without human beings having to configure everything."
The desire to grow further as a researcher also brought him to UB, he adds, noting that communication and signal processing is one of the three major research strengths of the Department of Electrical Engineering—the others being energy systems and nanoelectronics.
