Jeffrey Andrews (S’98, M’02, SM’06) received the B.S. in Engineering with High Distinction from Harvey Mudd College in 1995, and the M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 1999 and 2002, respectively.  He is a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, where he was the Director of the Wireless Networking and Communications Group (WNCG) from 2008-12. He developed Code Division Multiple Access systems at Qualcomm from 1995-97, and has consulted for entities including the WiMAX Forum, Microsoft, Apple, Clearwire, Palm, Sprint, ADC, and NASA.

Dr. Andrews is co-author of two books, Fundamentals of WiMAX (Prentice-Hall, 2007) and Fundamentals of LTE (Prentice-Hall, 2010), and holds the Earl and Margaret Brasfield Endowed Fellowship in Engineering at UT Austin, where he received the ECE department’s first annual High Gain award for excellence in research. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE, a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society, served as an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications from 2004-08, was the Chair of the 2010 IEEE Communication Theory Workshop, and is the Technical Program co-Chair of ICC 2012 (Comm. Theory Symposium) and Globecom 2014.  He is an elected member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Information Theory Society.


Dr. Andrews received the National Science Foundation CAREER award in 2007 and has been co-author of five best paper award recipients, two at Globecom (2006 and 2009), Asilomar (2008), the 2010 IEEE Communications Society Best Tutorial Paper Award, and the 2011 Communications Society Heinrich Hertz Prize.  His research interests are in communication theory, information theory, and stochastic geometry applied to wireless cellular and ad hoc networks.
