Name:J. Stephanie Rose
TitleCompany:Ph.D. Student, University of Pittsburgh
Bio:Rose is a third year PhD Student with the School of Computing and Information at the University of Pittsburgh. Currently, her research is focused on automated spectrum enforcement - from a regulatory authority perspective. In order to begin conceptualizing an automated enforcement structure, she extracted records from the Federal Communications Commission's Enforcement Bureau and focused on spectrum violations to determine what types of violations are prevalent (e.g. interference from pirate radio, expired licensee, etc.) and how the FCC EB adjudicates them.
The goal of Rose’s research is to design an automated system that would best encapsulate policy/ regulator needs and requirements for fair and consistent enforcement of radio spectrum. The expected outcomes of this work are to develop a more consistent and cohesive approach to regulating violations – specifically radio spectrum, as our society continues to navigate constant emerging technologies that rely/will rely on access to current electromagnetic spectrum resources.
