Dr. Daniel Stancil

Department Head, Electrical and Computer Engineering

| Biography

From 1981 to 1986 Dr. Stancil was Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at North Carolina State University. He joined the faculty at Carnegie Mellon University in 1986 as an Associate Professor, and served as Professor from 1990 to 2009. He joined the faculty at North Carolina State in 2009 as Head of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. His research interests are generally in the areas of applied electromagnetism, solid state physics, and communications. Specific interests include vehicle-to-vehicle communications, wireless signal distribution in buildings, novel radar systems, antenna design, cognitive radio, and optical nanostructures.

Dr. Stancil received a Sigma Xi Research Award from North Carolina State University in 1985, and was a leader in the development of the CMU ECE Department's Virtual Laboratory which was a finalist for a 1996 Smithsonian Computerworld Award. He was a co-recipient of the Science Award for Excellence in 1998 from the Pittsburgh Carnegie Science Center for the development and commercialization of electro-optics technology. Also in 1998, electro-optic scanning technology that he co-developed was recognized with an IR 100 Award and a Photonics Circle of Excellence Award. Dr. Stancil is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and a past-president of the IEEE Magnetics Society.
