Since March 2010, Dr. Hossain is a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of Victoria, Canada, in 2001. He was a University of Victoria Fellow and also a recipient of the British Columbia Advanced Systems Institute (ASI) graduate student award. Professor Hossain is an author/editor of the books Wireless Device-to-Device Communications and Networks (Cambridge University Press, 2015), Radio Resource Management in Multi-Tier Cellular Wireless Networks (Wiley, 2013), Smart Grid Communications and Networking (Cambridge University Press, 2012), Green Radio Communication Networks (Cambridge University Press, 2012), Cooperative Cellular Wireless Networks (Cambridge University Press, 2011), Dynamic Spectrum Access and Management in Cognitive Wireless Networks (Cambridge University Press, 2009), Heterogeneous Wireless Access Networks (Springer, 2008), Cognitive Wireless Communication Networks (Springer, 2007), Wireless Mesh Networks: Architectures and Protocols (Springer, 2007), and Introduction to Network Simulator NS2 (Springer, 2007). Currently Dr. Hossain serves as the Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials and an Editor for the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications - Cognitive Radio Series and IEEE Wireless Communications. Also, he serves on the IEEE Press Editorial Board (for the term 2013-2015). Previously, Dr. Hossain served as the Area Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications (in the area of "Resource Management and Multiple Access") from 2009-2011 and an Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing (from 2007-2012). He is a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Communications Society (for two terms during 2012-2015). Dr. Hossain is a registered Professional Engineer (P.Eng.) in the province of Manitoba, Canada.
