Prof. H. Vincent Poor (S’72, M’77, SM’82, F’87) received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering and computer science from Princeton University in 1977. From 1977 until 1990, he was on the faculty of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Since 1990 he has been on the faculty at Princeton, where he is currently the Michael Henry Strater University Professor of Electrical Engineering.
During 2006-16 he served as Dean of Princeton’s School of Engineering and Applied Science. He has also held visiting appointments at several other institutions, most recently at Cambridge and Stanford. His research interests are in the areas of information theory, stochastic analysis and statistical signal processing, and their applications in wireless networks and related fields such as smart grid. Among his publications in these areas is the recent book Mechanisms and Games for Dynamic Spectrum Allocation (Cambridge University Press, 2014).
