Ravi Mazumdar was born in Bangalore, India. He obtained
the B.Tech. in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology,
Bombay, India in 1977, the M.Sc. DIC in Control Systems from Imperial College, London, U.K. in 1978
and the Ph.D. in Systems Science from the University of California, Los Angeles,
In 1978-79 he was employed with GEC Electrical
Projects Ltd., Rugby, U.K. From April 1983-Oct. 1983 he was a Member of
Technical Staff, AT&T Bell Laboratories, Holmdel, N.J. He has held
visiting appointments at UCLA (1983-84),University of Twente, Enschede,
The Netherlands (Fall 1984), Indian
Science, Bangalore (Fall 1994) and the Ecole Nationale Superieure des
Telecommunications, Paris (1995). From 1985-1988 he was an
Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Columbia University, New York
where he was also a member of the Center for Telecommunications
Research. From 1988-96 he was a Professor at INRS-Telecommunications,
well as held an invited appointment in the Department of
Electrical Engineering, McGill
University, Montreal. In September 1996 he joined the Department of
Mathematics, University of Essex,
Colchester, U.K. as Professor of Stochastic Systems and Operational
Research. From 1999-2004 he was Professor of Electrical and Computer
Engineering at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, USA. In the
Fall of 2004 he joined the University of Waterloo as Professor and
holder of a University Research Chair.
He has been a consultant ("expert scientifique")
January 1994 to September 1996. He has been and is involved in many
conferences including IEEE INFOCOM, International Teletraffic Congress
(ITC) and IFIP Broadband Communication.
He was elected an IEEE Fellow for
"contributions to modeling, control, and performance analysis of
networks". He is also a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society and
member of the working groups
WG6.3 and 7.1 of IFIP. He shared the INFOCOM 2006 Best Paper Award with G.
Sharma (D.E. Shaw) and N. Shroff (Ohio State University) and his paper with N.
Likhanov (Inst. for Problems of Information Transmission, Moscow) was
Runner-up for the Best Paper Award at INFOCOM
1998 (San Francisco).
Applied probability, optimization and stochastic
focussing on applications in communication networks, complex stochastic
models, and statistical methods for inference from high dimensional
data. Specific interests stochastic networks and network science, game

I recently published a revised and expanded edition of Performance Modeling, Loss Networks, and
Statistical Multiplexing (originally published in 2010). The revision is entitled Performance Modeling, Stochastic Networks, and Statistical Multiplexing to reflect the expanded scope. The monograph has been published
Claypool (can be downloaded for free if your university subscribes
to the series). It
is available in two formats. As an e-book or in paperback that can be
ordered from Amazon.com. It is suitable for a graduate course on
performance analysis and modeling of communication networks.
