IMDEA Networks has announced that Dr. Nicholas F. Maxemchuk, Professor at the world-leading Columbia University of New York and a networking pioneer, has joined its Madrid-based research team as Chief Researcher. Professor Maxemchuk’s permanent double appointment is confirmed in a collaborative agreement between IMDEA Networks and Columbia University.
Many of Dr. Maxemchuk’s far-sighted contributions in computer-communications networking have been years ahead of their time and have led to the development of groundbreaking new systems.
His invention of dispersity routing in the 1970s, for example, has recently been applied to ad hoc networks. In 2006 his achievements in the field were recognized with the award of the prestigious 2006 IEEE Koji Kobiyashi Computers and Communications Award.
Prof. Dr. Arturo Azcorra, Director of IMDEA Networks, commented “We are honored that Dr. Maxemchuk has agreed to join our team. Nick brings expertise and research experience that will be invaluable to our Institute. Our younger researchers in particular, whose work will be supervised by Nick, will benefit greatly from working with such a renowned scientist.
The quality of his work is inspirational. Nick’s appointment represents a major milestone in our mission to establish a world-class international research institute here in Madrid. We also look forward to further collaboration with Columbia as a result of our agreement with them.
