Her research includes work on wireless communication and information theory, MIMO systems andmultihop networks, cross‐layer wireless system design, and wireless communications for distributed control. She is author of the book ``Wireless Communications'' and co‐author of the book ``MIMO Wireless Communications,'' both published by Cambridge University Press. She received the B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from U.C. Berkeley.‐recipient of the 2005 IEEE Communications Society and Information Theory Society joint paper award. Dr. Goldsmith currently serves as associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory and as editor for the Journal on Foundations and Trends in Communications and Information Theory and in Networks. She previously served as an editor for the IEEE Transactions on Communications and for the IEEE Wireless Communications Magazine, as well as guest editor for several IEEE journal and magazine special issues. Dr. Goldsmith participates actively in committees and conference organization for the IEEE Information Theory and Communications Societies and is an elected member of the Board of Governors for both societies. She is a distinguished lecturer for the IEEE Communications Society, the president of the IEEE Information Theory Society, and was the technical program co‐chair for the 2007 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory. She also founded the student committee of the IEEE Information Theory society, is an inaugural recipient of Stanford's postdoc mentoring award, and is an elected member of Stanford's faculty senate.
