Janne Lindqvist is an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at Rutgers University. His work is frequently featured in the popular media including several times in Scientific American, IEEE Spectrum, MIT Technology Review, Communications of the ACM, NPR, WHYY Radio, Yahoo! News, International Business Times, and recently also in ABC News, CBS News, Fox News, CW, WPIX and WGN News, ABC News Radio, CBS Radio News, Fortune, Computerworld, Der Spiegel, London Times, New Scientist, Slashdot, The Register, Wired (UK).

Janne has two engineering graduate degrees (M.Sc. 2005, D.Sc. 2009) in computer science and engineering from Helsinki University of Technology, Finland. He has never had an undergraduate degree, and is not planning to get one.

From Fall 2009 until Fall 2011, Janne was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Human-Computer Interaction Institute, which is part of the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. Before joining academia, Janne was a co-founder of a wireless networks company called Radionet, which operated in 24 countries
before being sold to Florida-based Airspan Networks Inc. in November 2005.

Janne has served on numerous technical program committees in premier conferences spanning several fields
and including CHI, CSCW, ICDCS, MobileHCI, MobiSys, PETS, PerCom, SOUPS, and USENIX Security.
