Douglas S. Chan
Visiting Researcher Scholar
Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
University of California, Berkeley
Douglas S. Chan received from Cornell University his Ph.D. degree
in electrical and computer engineering (ECE) with minor in applied mathematics in 2006 and M.Eng. degree in electrical engineering (EE) in 2001.
He received his B.A.Sc. degree in EE from Queen's University in Canada.
Since 2014, Doug has been a Visiting Researcher Scholar with the Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at
University of California, Berkeley, where his work is affiliated with the
Swarm Lab and Berkeley Wireless Research Center.
Prior to that (2006-2014), Doug was a Technical Leader at Cisco Systems' Wireless Networking Business Unit and his work included
R&D on wireless LAN products and their standardizations. Later at Cisco, Doug was with Cisco
Advanced Architecture and Research, where he investigated emerging paradigms
like fog computing, data analytics, and Internet of Things.
Before Cornell (1998-2000), Doug was a Software
Engineer with the IBM Toronto Lab, where he developed enterprise-scaled
applications for database access, distributed computing and network
Doug also had various internships in the wireless industry: Hong
Kong Telecom CSL
(Mobile Networks: Radio Planning);
Texas Instruments (Communications Systems Lab); and Symbol
Technologies (Corporate R&D).
In 2006 (Jan-May), he was a Visiting Scientist with the School of ECE at Cornell University.
Doug is a Senior Member of IEEE and a licensed professional engineer (P.Eng.) of Ontario,
Canada. He was elected as Secretary for the IEEE Signal Processing Society Santa Clara Valley chapter for 2007-2009. Doug also received recognitions from the IEEE Standards Association on his contributions to the 802.11n and 802.11y wireless LAN standards.
