The SpectrumX leadership team invites expressions of interest from faculty members to design and develop courseware for one of three proposed online courses for publication on the Coursera platform. SpectrumX is launching a multi-course specialization (tentatively titled Spectrum Innovation) at the early graduate level in order to attract professionals to the field, upskill current practitioners, and support the broader educational goals of our grant and 29 institutional partners.
Interference conflicts are ongoing challenges within the radio spectrum field. Within the U.S. spectrum ecosystem, commercial wireless networks for communication, internet access, scientific sensing for both environment and radio astronomy, broadcast, radar, position/navigation/timing, and more create a sometimes crowded atmosphere where signals compete.
Notre Dame researchers, including SpectrumX Director Nick Laneman, present latest findings and innovations to nation’s second highest-ranking military officer
In October, Admiral Christopher W. Grady, the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, joined faculty members at the University of Notre Dame for an update on the University’s research activities. Admiral Grady, a 1984 graduate of Notre Dame, is also a past recipient of the University’s Rev. William Corby, C.S.C., Award for distinguished military service.
SpectrumX is pleased to be able to offer educational opportunities for undergraduate students.
While they may have only had a few games on the field, researchers from both universities have long worked together in the lab — studying chronic disease and children’s health, exploring planet formation and building autonomous machines.

PAWR: Platforms and Testbeds for Wireless Experimentation and Data Collection
Tommaso Melodia, William L. Smith Professor at Northeastern University
March 7th, 2022 | 4:30 pm (ET)
Virtual – Registration Required
Abstract: This talk will present an overview of existing testbeds and platforms available to the wireless research community for prototyping, experimentation, and data collection with a variety of
wireless technologies and scenarios, and with a focus on virtualized and softwarized wireless systems. The talk will discuss the NSF Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research Program and its resources for over-the-air experimentation and at-scale emulation, as well as a number of tools available to the research community for experiment design and analysis.
Bio: Tommaso Melodia is the William Lincoln Smith Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University in Boston. He is the Founding Director of the
Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things and the Director of Research for the PAWR Project Office. He received his Laurea (integrated BS and MS) from the University of Rome – La Sapienza and
his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2007. He is an IEEE Fellow and recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER award. Prof. Melodia is serving as Editor in Chief for Computer Networks, and was the Technical Program Committee Chair for IEEE Infocom 2018, and General Chair for ACM MobiHoc 2020, IEEE SECON 2019, ACM Nanocom 2019, and ACM WUWNet 2014. Prof. Melodia’s research on modeling, optimization, and experimental evaluation of wireless networked systems has been funded by US federal agencies and industry. https://ece.northeastern.edu/wineslab/people/tommaso/melodia.jpg
