Biography

Violet Syrotiuk is an associate professor in the School of Computing, Informatics and Decision Systems Engineering at Arizona State University. She studies complex engineered networks. One of her interests is medium access control (MAC) protocols for wireless networks and their implementation on the new programmable radio platforms. Another major interest is in dynamic optimization of the radio and/or network parameters to find the best configuration given the wireless network's operating environment. Her work has been funded by NSF, DARPA, LANL, Raytheon, Raytheon BBN, General Dynamics, and DSTO (Australia). She serves on the editorial boards of the journals Computer Networks (Elsevier) and Computer Communications (Elsevier), and on the technical program committees of major conferences sponsored by the IEEE and ACM.
