Network Science Expert is 2019-2020 Visiting Professor

Researcher and author of A Survey of Fractal Dimensions of Networks, Eric Rosenberg has studied networks since he joined Bell Labs after earning his doctoral degree at Stanford. “The field of network science has recently attracted enormous interest, by considering such topics as social networks, brain networks and the security of our national infrastructure,” he said.

“My current research studies routing in large networks and methods for characterizing large networks, said Rosenberg, who holds 17 patents. “Not surprisingly, they all have to do with networks,” he admitted.

After serving as an ISE adjunct professor last spring, Rosenberg – whose teaching credentials also include stints at Princeton and NJIT – joined the department as a full-time visiting professor this fall. While he is currently teaching undergraduate courses in Work Design and Ergonomics and Probability Methods in Operations Research, he hopes to teach a graduate level course in networks next semester pending department approval.

“The ISE department is a welcoming place and I feel fortunate to be part of it,” he said. “I love interacting with the students. They are smart and interesting and I look forward to working with them on projects and research.”
