Michael R. Souryal, D.Sc.

Michael Souryal is with the Advanced Network Technologies Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) conducting research in wireless communication systems. After earning his D.Sc. in electrical engineering from The George Washington University, Dr. Souryal was awarded an NRC Postdoctoral Fellowship at NIST in 2004. He was formerly with Telcordia Technologies where he focused on new service development for public network providers. Dr. Souryal also has an M.S. in information networking from Carnegie Mellon University and a B.S. in electrical engineering from Cornell University. He has held an adjunct appointment as Professorial Lecturer at The George Washington University. His research interests are in communication theory, spectrum sharing, and public safety communications.
