Michael Souryal is with the Communications Technology Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) leading the spectrum sharing research team of the Wireless Networks Division. He joined NIST in 2004 as an NRC Postdoctoral Fellow. Previously, he was a member of technical staff with Telcordia Technologies. He has also held an adjunct appointment as Professorial Lecturer at George Washington University. Dr. Souryal has co-authored over 50 technical publications. He is NIST's principal representative to the Wireless Innovation Forum Spectrum Sharing Committee for CBRS standardization. He received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Cornell University, the M.S. degree in information networking from Carnegie Mellon University, and the D.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from George Washington University. His research interests are in communication theory and signal processing with applications to spectrum sharing.
