Subir Biswas is a Professor and the founding director of Networked Embedded and Wireless Systems (NeEWS) laboratory at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of Michigan State University. Dr. Biswas earned his Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge, UK, and his B.S. and M.S. at Jadavpur University in Calcutta, India. Prior to joining MSU in 2003, Dr. Biswas was the Principal Architect at Tellium Optical Systems, where he was a lead researcher on optical network restoration modeling, fault tolerant network design, network management, and advanced application development. Before Tellium, he worked as a Research Staff Member at NEC Research Institute in Princeton, New Jersey, where his work was focused on wireless ATM, IP multicast and IP traffic engineering problems. Prior to that, Dr. Biswas worked in AT&T Laboratories, Cambridge, where his primary responsibilities were to design and develop mobility signaling and MAC layer protocols for wireless ATM networks.

Dr. Biswas has more than 20 years of research experience in networking industry and in academia, and had published over 275 peer-reviewed articles. Among other distinctions, papers from his group won best paper awards in ICWMC 2012, ICICS 2012, COMSNETS 2011, and GLOBECOM 2009. He is also a co-inventor of 11 U.S. patents (granted and pending). His current research interests include the broad area of wireless data networking, low-power network protocols, and application-specific sensor networks.

He, along with his co-investigators, raised over $9 Million research funding. Research in Dr. Biswas' laboratory has been funded by Michigan Initiative for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (MIIE), National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), US Department of Agriculture (USDA), Michigan Department of Transportation (M-DoT), Michigan Animal and Agriculture Initiative (MAAI), Sustainable Michigan Endowed Project (SMEP), and Michigan State University (MSU).
