Piet F. A. Van Mieghem is professor at the Delft University of Technology with a chair in telecommunication networks and chairman of the section Network Architectures and Services (NAS) since 1998. His main research interests lie in the modelling and analysis of complex networks (such as biological, brain, social, infrastructural, etc. networks) and in new Internet-like architectures and algorithms for future communications networks.

Professor Van Mieghem received a Master and Ph. D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the K.U.Leuven (Belgium) in 1987 and 1991, respectively. Before joining Delft, he worked at the Interuniversity Micro Electronic Center (IMEC) from 1987 to 1991. During 1993 to 1998, he was a member of the Alcatel Corporate Research Center in Antwerp where he was engaged in performance analysis of ATM systems and in network architectural concepts of both ATM networks (PNNI) and the Internet. He was a visiting scientist at MIT (department of Electrical Engineering, 1992-1993) and a visiting professor at UCLA (department of Electrical Engineering, 2005) and at Cornell University (Center of Applied Mathematics, 2009).

He was member of the editorial board of Computer Networks (2005-2006) and of the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking (2008-2012). Currently, he serves on the editorial board of the OUP journal of Complex Networks, Computer Communications and the Journal of Discrete Mathematics. He is the author of three books: Performance Analysis of Communications Networks and Systems, Data Communications Networking and Graph Spectra for Complex Networks.
