Research interests


Stephen F. Bush is a researcher in Algorithmic Communications Network Theory at the GE Global Research Center. Stephen explores novel concepts in complexity and algorithmic information theory for applications ranging from network management and wireless ad hoc networking to RNA sequence analyses and novel concepts in nanotechnology-based networking. Dr. Bush was presented with a Gold Cup Trophy Award from DARPA for his work in fault tolerant networking. Stephen F. Bush received the B.S. degree in electrical and computer engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, M.S. degree in computer science from Cleveland State University, and Ph.D. degree from the University of Kansas. He is currently a researcher at General Electric Global Research, Niskayuna, NY. He is the author of Nanoscale Communication Networks (Norwood, MA: Artech House, 2010). He coauthored a book on active network management, titled Active Networks and Active Network Management: A Proactive Management Framework (New York, NY: Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers, 2001). He is an internationally recognized researcher in Active Networking and Algorithmic Communications Networking Theory with over 50 peer-reviewed publications. Dr. Bush is the past chair of the IEEE Emerging Technical Subcommittee on Nanoscale, Molecular, and Quantum Networking and currently chair for the IEEE 1906.1 standards working group on nanoscale communication networks. Dr. Bush is an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer on the smart grid and nanoscale communication networks. He is also on the steering committee for the IEEE Smart Grid Vision Project.
