Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Muriel Médard is the Cecil H. Green Professor in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and leads the Network Coding and Reliable Communications Group at the Research Laboratory of Electronics. Her research interests are in the areas of network coding and reliable communications, particularly for optical and wireless networks. Her work in network coding, hardware implementation, and her original algorithms have received widespread recognition and awards. Médard is the co-founder of three companies to commercialize network coding — CodeOn, Steinwurf and Chocolate Cloud. She has served as Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, and as an editor for other IEEE publications. She is an elected fellow of the IEEE, National Academy of Inventors and National Academy of Engineering.
