About Me

Hi, I’m Joanne Skiles. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor, and before that, I was a Software Engineer for over 9 years.

I’m worked in several different industries (defense, entertainment, and medical) while also working on getting my Ph.D. (which I completed in 2017). I worked myself up in the industry and eventually became a Lead Software Engineer, until I decided to change careersĀ and become a professor. I decided to become a professor so that I could give back and teach others as well as further my research interests.

So here I am, and here is this blog. This blog will focus on what I am researching with tips and tricks on some of the tools I use, tutorials, and whatever else I find interesting (tech-wise).

Currently, I am researching in the fields of vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETs), the Internet of Things, and big data analytics. My main research focus has been on the design, analysis, implementation, and experimental evaluation of VANET routing algorithms.
