Prof. Striegel received his Ph.D in 2002 in Computer Engineering at Iowa State University under the direction of Dr. G. Manimaran. Prof. Striegel’s research interests focus on instrumenting the wireless networked ecosystem to gain insight with respect to user behavior and optimizing network performance. Flagship projects of Prof. Striegel include the NetSense, NetHealth, and Tesserae involving the instrumentation and analysis of data from hundreds of smartphones and wearables over a nearly seven year period of continuous data streaming. Further research interests of Prof. Striegel include heterogeneous network optimization (cellular, WiFi), content distribution via edge device pre-staging, and network security dynamics. Prof. Striegel has also successfully led undergraduate research utilizing low-cost gaming peripherals for education and rehabilitation.
Prof. Striegel has published over one hundred peer-reviewed papers in the literature with multiple best paper awards including USENIX LISA, IEEE Healthcom, and HotPlanet. Throughout his career, Prof. Striegel has been able to fund his work with research and equipment funding from NSF, NIH, DARPA, IARPA, Keck Futures Institute, and numerous industrial entities (Google, Sprint, Nokia, Intel, HP, Sun). He was recipient of a NSF CAREER award in 2004 and has participated in several symposia as an invited participant with notable instances including the National Academy of Engineering symposium on the Frontiers of Engineering Education and the symposium on the Informed Brain in the Digital World. Prof. Striegel has also served in various roles in the community including recently serving as the general chair of ICCCN 2016, TPC chair of ICCN 2015, chair of HotPlanet 2016, and the publication co-chair of INFOCOM 2016.

[June 15, 2018] Great workshop in Amsterdam for NOSSDAV 2018. I had the pleasure of presenting my student Lixing’s paper entitled “SEWS: A Channel-Aware Stall-Free WiFi Video Streaming Mechanism” at the workshop in addition to serving as a session chair for the first session. Very well attended workshop and lots of great questions.
[June 1, 2018] I will be joining the editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing as an Associate Editor. Looking forward to serving the community in this new exciting role.
[June 1st, 2018] Many thanks to all of the esteemed faculty here in ND CSE and my former (Kevin Bowyer) and current chair (Pat Flynn) for allowing me to serve as Associate Chair for the past six years. My best wishes to Doug Thain who will be succeeding me as Associate Chair for the department.
[April 24, 2018] Congrats to Lixing Song on getting his paper entitled “SEWS: A Channel-Aware Stall-Free WiFi Video Streaming Mechanism” accepted to appear at NOSSDAV 2018 in Amsterdam in June.
[April 15, 2018] I am happy to announce that I will be serving on the inaugural editorial board for the soon to be launched IEEE Networking Letters. Many thanks to George (EiC) and Christos (Associate EiC) for the invite.
