Stephen F. Bush is a researcher in Algorithmic Communications Network Theory at GE Research. 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’s Research Center in Niskayuna, NY. He is the author of Smart Grid: Communication-Enabled Intelligence for the Electric Power Grid (Wiley – IEEE, 2014) and 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 75 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 taught Quantum Computation and Communication at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and is leading an effort to start IEEE P1913, Software-Defined Quantum Communication.
Stephen Bush enjoys writing technical books that do not shy away from going deep into difficult (and sometimes controversial) technical issues while also keeping the reader engaged and motivated with the exciting concepts and benefits that these technologies enable when taken to their limit. Innovation, imagination, and creativity are some of the most highly-valued characteristics in industry and he strives to include these throughout his writing. Whether used as textbooks in the classroom or as a source of ideas for the researcher, if they excite one person to explore a new area or provide a new way of looking at an old problem and thereby change the world, it would be wonderful.
Steve enjoys working out and lifting weights at the GE gym to break up the day.
