Reuven CohenReuven Cohen received the Ph.D. degree from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology in 1991. From 1991 to 1993, he was with the IBM T.J.Watson Research Center. Since 1993, he has been a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science at the Technion, where he is a full professor.

Reuven’s research areas include optical and wireless networks, sensor networks, mobile networks, protocol design and analysis, traffic engineering, and many other aspects of modern communication networks.

Reuven has served as an editor of the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking journal and the ACM Journal on Wireless Networks (WINET). He was the TPC co-chair of Infocom 2010 and MedHocNet 2009. He also served as a TCP member of many conferences, including Infocom, Sigcomm and ICNP.

Since February 2013, Prof. Cohen has also been serving as the Technion’s deputy vice president for information and computing systems.
