ISR alum earns tenure at MIT

ISR alum Dr. Eytan Modiano, already an associate professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has earned tenure there. Eytan earned his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 1992; his advisor was Professor Anthony Ephremides (ECE/ISR) for both his M.S. and Ph.D. Ephremides writes, "He was among the first crop of great students that came out of the establishment of ISR in the mid '80s with the likes of Scott Corson, Rajiv Laroia and Leandros Tassiulas." At MIT, Eytan is a specialist in optical and ad hoc wireless networks and will be the Technical Program Chair at next year's IEEE INFOCOM. Ephremides continues, "He is one of the best known and respected researchers in the field worldwide. We are proud to have such distinguished graduates."
