Creating Underwater Networks
ECE professor Milica Stojanovic has been awarded an $120K NSF grant to develop a mobile underwater communications network for use in areas like environmental monitoring, security, and aquaculture.
Milica Stojanovic graduated from the University of Belgrade, Serbia, in 1988, and received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Northeastern University, Boston, MA, in 1991 and 1993. After a number of years with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she was a Principal Scientist, she joined the faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Northeastern University in 2008. She is also a Guest Investigator at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and a Visiting Scientist at MIT. Her research interests include digital communications theory, statistical signal processing and wireless networks, and their applications to mobile radio and underwater acoustic communication systems. Milica is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering and the IEEE Transactions on Signal processing.
