Sumit Roy received the B. Tech. degree from the Indian Institute of Technology (Kanpur) in 1983, and the M. S. and Ph. D. degrees from the University of California (Santa Barbara), all in Electrical Engineering in 1985 and 1988 respectively, as well as an M. A. in Statistics and Applied Probability in 1988. Presently he is Integrated Systems Professor of Electrical Engineering, Univ. of Washington where his research interests include analysis/design of wireless communication and sensor network systems with a current emphasis on wireless LANs (802.11) and wireless MANs (802.16), multi-standard wireless inter-networking and cognitive radio platforms, and sensor networking involving RFID technology. He is also exploring applications and extensions of networking technologies and principles to new domains such as social, energy and biological  networks.

He spent 2001-03 on academic leave at Intel Wireless Technology Lab as a Senior Researcher engaged in systems architecture and standards development for ultra-wideband systems (Wireless PANs) and next generation high-speed wireless LANs. His activities for the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) includes membership of several technical and conference program committees (most recently, Vice Chair of Technical Program Committee for IEEE WCNC05 conference).  He has served as Associate Editor for IEEE Trans. Communications and IEEE Trans. on Wireless Communications and currently serves on the Editorial Board for IEEE Trans. Communications, IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems and Wiley J. Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing. He was elevated to IEEE Fellow by Communications Society in 2007 for his “contributions to multi-user communications theory and cross-layer design of wireless networking standards.”
