Biosketch

Daniel Dailey received the B.S. degree from Pennsylvania State University in 1979 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Washington in 1982 and 1988 respectively. He is a research track Professor and also holds an adjunct appointment in Civil Engineering in the College of Engineering where he serves as the director of the Intelligent Transportation Systems program. He has directed funded research and published articles in the areas of GIS, GPS, distributed computing, modeling of stochastic processes, and ITS systems as well as distance learning. He is co-author of a book titled "Wireless Communication for Intelligent Transportation Systems."
