Frank M. Freimann Professor of Electrical Engineering
Martin Haenggi is the Frank M. Freimann Professor of Electrical Engineering and a concurrent professor of applied mathematics and statistics, and has been a faculty member at Notre Dame since 2001. Prior to coming to the University, he earned his M.Sc. and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, and spent a postdoctoral year at the University of California Berkeley. He specializes in wireless communications and networking, with a focus on the modeling, analysis, and design of wireless networks using stochastic geometry, and is part of Notre Dame's Wireless Institute.
Professor Haenggi has published prolifically in his field, including the textbook Stochastic Geometry for Wireless Networks and the monograph Interference in Large Wireless Networks. He was named a fellow of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in 2013, and currently serves as the chair of the Executive Editorial Committee of IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications.
This professorship was established in 2000 with earnings from a gift of the Freimann Charitable Trust made in honor of Frank Freimann, a pioneer of the electronics industry and former chief executive officer of Magnavox.
