The IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing (TMC) continues to grow rapidly, both in the number of papers being submitted and the diverse technical areas it covers. To better align the size and composition of TMC's Editorial Board with this growth, it is my pleasure to introduce four new Associate Editors to TMC's Editorial Board: Srdjan Capkun, Bhaskaran Raman, Wei Ye, and Heather Zheng. They bring much needed expertise is areas such as experimental systems, measurements, cognitive radios, security, and sensor networks. Their biographies are included below. I would like to thank our readers and authors for their continued support of TMC and welcome you to send me feedback and suggestions about the journal.

Srdjan Capkun received the Diplom Ingenieur degree in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of Split, Croatia, in 1998, and the PhD degree (Docteur es Sciences) in communication systems from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology - Lausanne (EPFL) in 2004. He was a postdoctoral researcher in the Networked and Embedded Systems Laboratory (NESL), University of California, Los Angeles, and an assistant professor in the Informatics and Mathematical Modeling Department (IMM), Technical University of Denmark (DTU). He joined the faculty of the Department of Computer Science, ETH Zurich, in 2006. His research interests include the design and analysis of security protocols for wireless and wireline networks. In 2006, he won the Danish Independent Research Council's Young Elite Researcher's Award. He served as an area editor of the A CM Sigmobile Mobile Computing and Communications Review and as a technical program cochair of the IEEE International Workshop on Engineering Semantic Agent Systems (ESAS).
Bhaskaran Raman received the BTech degree in computer science and engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, in May 1997. He received the MS and PhD degrees in computer science from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1999 and 2002, respectively. He was a faculty member in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, beginning in June 2003. Since July 2007, he has been a faculty member in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. His research interests and expertise are in communication networks, wireless/mobile networks, large-scale Internet-based systems, and Internet middleware services. His current focus and specific interest is in appropriate technology in the domain of communication and computing for rural use.
Wei Ye received the BS and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from Xidian University, China, and the MS degree in computer science from the University of Southern California (USC) in 1991, 1996, and 2001, respectively. He is a research assistant professor in the Computer Science Department and a computer scientist at the Information Sciences Institute (ISI), USC. He is working in the area of wireless sensor networks and underwater acoustic networks. His research interests include MAC layer design, energy management, network architecture, signal processing, experimental testbeds, and operational systems for scientific applications. He has published extensively in these areas. He is a PI or co-PI of several projects funded by the US National Science Foundation (NSF), NASA, Intel, and Chevron Co. Dr. Ye is an area editor of the ACM Sigmobile Mobile Computing and Communications Review. He is a technical program cochair of the Third ACM International Workshop on UnderWater Networks (WUWNet). He has served on several NSF review panels and many conference committees.
Heather Zheng received the BS degree (with highest honor) from Xian Jiaotong University in July 1995 and the MSEE and PhD degrees in electrical and computer engineering from University of Maryland, College Park, in May 1998 and July 1999, respectively. She joined the Wireless Research Lab, Bell-Labs, Lucent Technologies, as a member of the technical staff in August 1999 and was recruited by Microsoft Research Asia as a project lead and researcher in March 2004. Since September 2005, she has been an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department, University of California, Santa Barbara. Dr. Zheng's research interests include wireless systems and networking and multimedia computing, where she is currently focusing on cognitive radios and dynamic spectrum access. Dr. Zheng was recently named one of the 2005 Massachusetts Institute of Technoloy (MIT) Technology Review Top 35 Innovators under the age of 35 for her work on cognitive radios. This work was also selected by the MIT Technology Review as one of the 10 Emerging Technologies in 2006.
