"For outstanding service to the Communications Society as Director of Journals."
Larry J. Greenstein received the B.S. M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology in 1958, 1961 and 1967, respectively. From 1958 to 1970, he was at IIT Research Institute, where he worked on radio frequency interference and anti-clutter airborne radar. This included co-leading an industry team in the selection of the best proposal for the AWACS radar system, and devising a model of airborne clutter for the U.S. Air Force. He joined Bell Laboratories in Holmdel, NJ in 1970. Over a 32-year AT&T career, he conducted research in digital satellites, point-to-point digital radio, optical transmission techniques and wireless communications. For 21 years during that period (1979-2000), he led a research department renowned for its contributions in these fields. Since 2002, he has been a research professor at Rutgers University’s WINLAB, working on PHY-based security techniques, MIMO-based cellular systems, broadband power line systems, cognitive radio and channel modeling.
Dr. Greenstein is an IEEE Life Fellow, an AT&T Fellow, a recipient of the IEEE Communications Society’s Edwin Howard Armstrong Award, and co-author of several award-winning papers. He has served on numerous editorial boards and technical program committees and was recently Director of Journals for the IEEE Communications Society.
