Jeanne Quimby (Fed)

Dr. Jeanne Quimby is the project leader for the Device-level Anomaly Detection to Forensic Security Electromagnetic Emissions (DARE2FORESEE) project. She and the team assess wireless telecommunication devices for cybersecurity vulnerabilities at the radio access network and the device sub-component level.

She received her Ph.D. and M.S. from The Ohio State University and a B.S. from the University of California of San Diego. Jeanne currently serves as the Commission A Chair for the U.S. National Committee for the International Union of Radio Science (USNC-URSI) and the Vice-Chair of IEEE P2982 – Millimeter-Wave Channel Sounder Verification. If you are interested in contacting her, please use the following email jeanne.quimby [at] (jeanne[dot]quimby[at]nist[dot]gov).
