Piet F. A. Van Mieghem is professor at the Delft University of Technology with a chair in telecommunication networks and chairman of the section Network Architectures and Services (NAS) since 1998.
His main research interests lie in the modelling and analysis of complex networks (such as biological, brain, social, infrastructural, etc. networks) and in new Internet-like architectures and algorithms for future communications networks.
He is the author of three books: Performance Analysis of Communications Networks and Systems, Data Communications Networking and Graph Spectra for Complex Networks.
Professor Van Mieghem received a Master and Ph.
D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the K.U.Leuven (Belgium) in
1987 and 1991, respectively. Before joining Delft, he worked at the
Interuniversity Micro Electronic Center (IMEC) from 1987 to 1991. During
1993 to 1998, he was a member of the Alcatel Corporate Research Center
in Antwerp where he was engaged in performance analysis of ATM systems
and in network architectural concepts of both ATM networks (PNNI) and
the Internet. He was a visiting scientist at MIT (department of Electrical
Engineering, 1992-1993) and a visiting professor at UCLA (department of
Electrical Engineering, 2005) and at Cornell University (Center of Applied Mathematics, 2009).
He was member of the editorial board of Computer Networks (2005-2006), of the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking (2008-2012) and of the Journal of Discrete Mathematics (2012-2014).
