Dr. Haas is an author of over 300 technical papers and holds twenty one patents in the fields of high-speed networking, wireless networks, and optical switching. He has organized several workshops, delivered numerous tutorials at major IEEE and ACM conferences, and has served as editor of several journals and magazines, including the IEEE Transactions on Networking, the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, the IEEE Communications Magazine, the Springer “Wireless Networks” journal, the Elsevier “Ad Hoc Networks” journal, the “Journal of High Speed Networks,” and the Wiley “Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing” journal. He has been a guest editor of IEEE JSAC issues on "Gigabit Networks," "Mobile Computing Networks," and "Ad-Hoc Networks." Dr. Haas is an IEEE Fellow, an IET Fellow, and a Fellow of EAI. He has served in the past as a Chair of the IEEE Technical Committee on Personal Communications (TCPC). His interests include: mobile and wireless communication and networks, biologically-inspired networks, and modeling of complex systems.

Research Interests and Activities:
The goal of my research is the proliferation of wireless and mobile communication, so as to allow ubiquitous, multi-media access to information and services by mobile and stationary users. My research interests concentrate on two fields: Wireless Communications and Mobile Systems, and Biologically-inspired Complex Systems and Networks. In the context of the Wireless Communications and Mobile System topic, I am interested in studying (a) novel protocols for information dissemination in ad hoc and sensor networks, and (b) the effects of mobility on protocol design and on the optimal distribution of processing in distributed systems. In the context of Biologically-inspired Complex Systems and Networks, I am interested in stochastic modeling of complex systems based on incomplete observation of the behavior of such systems.
