Associate Research Scholar
Paul Schmitt was a postdoctoral research associate at the Center for Information Technology Policy (2016-2019), and as of June 1, 2019 became an associate research scholar with CITP. Paul’s research interests span the areas of wireless network systems design, and network measurement and performance analysis. Through comprehensive analysis across all tiers of real-world telecommunications infrastructure, Paul’s research aims to produce solutions that solve fundamental connectivity problems, and in particular those that that manifest in challenging network environments. His Ph.D. thesis examined wireless connectivity in resource-limited environments (e.g. refugee camps, rural Guatemala, and Zambia) and proposed systems designed to augment connectivity for scenarios similar to those studied. Paul holds a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of California, Santa Barbara and an M.S. and B.A. from the University of St. Thomas (MN).
