Biography

Edmund Yeh received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering with Distinction and Phi Beta Kappa from Stanford University in 1994. He then studied at Cambridge University on the Winston Churchill Scholarship, obtaining his M.Phil in Engineering in 1995. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT under Professor Robert Gallager in 2001.

He is currently Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University. He was previously Assistant and Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Statistics at Yale University. Professor Yeh has held visiting positions at MIT, Stanford, Princeton, University of California at Berkeley, New York University, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), and Technical University of Munich. He has been on the technical staff at the Mathematical Sciences Research Center, Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies, Signal Processing Research Department, AT&T Bell Laboratories, and Space and Communications Group, Hughes Electronics Corporation.

Professor Yeh is the recipient of the Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellowship, the Army Research Office Young Investigator Award, the Winston Churchill Scholarship, the National Science Foundation and Office of Naval Research Graduate Fellowships, the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship, the Frederick Emmons Terman Engineering Scholastic Award, and the President’s Award for Academic Excellence (Stanford University). He is a Senior Member of the IEEE, a member of Phi Beta Kappa and Tau Beta Pi.  He has received three Best Paper Awards: at ACM Conference on Information-Centric Networking (ICN), Berlin, Germany, September 2017, at IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC), London, UK, June 2015, and at IEEE International Conference on Ubiquitous and Future Networks (ICUFN), Phuket, Thailand, July 2012.  Professor Yeh has led or participated in funded research projects worth over $35 million. 

Professor Yeh has served as the Secretary of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Information Theory Society. He serves as General Co-Chair for ACM Conference on Information-Centric Networking (ICN) 2018 in Boston. He serves as an Associate Editor for IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking and IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering. He served as an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, the Guest Editor-in-Chief of the Special Issue on Wireless Networks for Internet Mathematics, and a Guest Editor of the Special Series on Smart Grid Communications for IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications. He served as a Steering Committee Member for IEEE International Conference on Smart Grid Communications (SmartGridComm), as General Co-chair of the DIMACS (Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science) Workshop on Connectivity and Resilience for Large-Scale Networks, and as General Co-chair for the Workshop on Spatial Stochastic Models for Wireless Networks (SpaSWiN). He has also served on the technical program committees of many leading conferences and workshops, including IEEE Infocom, Globecom, ICC, SmartGridComm, and ACM MobiHoc. Professor Yeh is a Faculty Fellow of the Internet Society Project at Yale Law School.
