Welcome to David's website

David G. M. Mitchell received the B.Sc. degree in Mathematics and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Edinburgh, UK in 2005 and 2009, respectively. David is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics, working with Prof. Daniel J. Costello, Jr. and Dr. Roxana Smarandache as part of the Wireless Institute at the University of Notre Dame.

During Summer 2004, David was an undergraduate research fellow in the School of Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh supported by the William and Isabella Dick Bequest. From September 2007 to January 2008, David was a visiting researcher in the Dept. of Electrical Engineering, University of Notre Dame, IN, USA, supported by the John Moyes Lessells Travel Scholarship from the Royal Society of Edinburgh. In February and March 2010, he was a visiting researcher in the Dept. of Mathematics and Statistics at San Diego State University, CA, USA. In November and December 2010, he was a visiting researcher at the Vodafone Chair Mobile Communications Systems, Technical University of Dresden, Germany. From February to May 2011, he was a visiting researcher in the Dept. of Mathematics and Statistics at San Diego State University, CA, USA.
