Cristina Comaniciu received the M.S. degree in electronics from the Polytechnic University of Bucharest in 1993, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from Rutgers University in December 2001. From 1998 to 2001 she was with the Wireless Information Network Laboratory (WINLAB) at Rutgers University, working on integrated access control and detection algorithms for multimedia CDMA systems. At WINLAB she worked under the supervision of Professor Narayan Mandayam . From 2002 to 2003 she was affiliated with the Electrical Engineering Department at Princeton University as a research associate, working with Professor H. Vincent Poor . Since August 2003, she is an assistant professor at Stevens Institute of Technology , Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering . She is a recipient of the WINSEC 2004 award for outstanding contributions, and a co-author of the recent book "Wireless Networks: Multiuser Detection in Cross-Layer Design", Springer, NY, 2005.
Her research interests include cross-layer design for wireless networks, game theoretic approaches for design of energy aware wireless networks, cooperative algorithms for spectrum sharing and interference mitigation, radio resource management for cellular and ad hoc networks, admission/access control for multimedia wireless systems, and security tradeoffs for wireless networks.
