David G. Michelson received the B.A.Sc., M.A.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, BC, Canada. From 1996 to 2001, he served as a member of a joint team from AT&T Wireless Services, Redmond, WA, and AT&T Labs-Research, Red Bank, NJ, where he contributed to the development of propagation and channel models for next-generation fixed and mobile wireless systems that formed the basis for those later adopted by the WiMAX and LTE communities. Since 2003, Prof. Michelson has led the Radio Science Laboratory in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UBC, where his research interests include antenna design and channel modeling for wireless sensor network, advanced cellular, short range vehicular, and satellite communications. In 2011, he and his former student Simon Chiu won the 2011 R. W. P. King Best Paper Award of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society. Prof. Michelson is a member of the Boards of Governors of the IEEE Communications Society and IEEE Vehicular Technology Society, past Director of Education and Training for ComSoc, and serves as General Chair of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference 2014 Fall, the 2015 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and North American Radio Science Meeting, the 2015 International Conference on Testbeds and Research Infrastructures for the Development of Networks & Communities (TRIDENTCOM) and the 2015 IEEE International Symposium on Ethics in Engineering, Science, and Technology (IEEE ETHICS).

Prof. Michelson has been interviewed by the CBC National News and the Globe and Mail Report on Business concerning modern wireless technology.
