Biography

Janne Lehtomäki got his doctorate from the University of Oulu, Finland, in 2005. Currently, he is adjunct professor (docent) at the University of Oulu, Centre for Wireless Communications. He spent the fall 2013 semester at the Georgia Tech, Atlanta, USA, as a visiting scholar. Currently, he is focusing on spectrum measurements and terahertz band wireless communication. Dr. Lehtomäki has served as a guest associate editor for the IEICE Transactions on Communications Special Section (Feb. 2014) and as a managing guest editor for Nano Communication Networks Special Issue (to appear in 2016). He was TPC co-chair for IEEE WCNC 2015 and 2016 International Workshop on Smart Spectrum, publicity/publications co-chair for ACM NANOCOM 2015 and 2016. He co-authored the paper receiving the Best Paper Award in IEEE WCNC 2012. He is editorial board member of Physical Communication.
