Dr. Anton Riedl is an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Christopher Newport University and Chair of the Department of Physics, Computer Science and Engineering. He enjoys teaching undergraduate and graduate classes, mostly in computer networking and engineering fundamentals, and supervising capstone design projects and Master’s theses. Anton’s research interests include applications of networking (such as IoT, sensor networks, SDN), network planning and optimization, and autonomous systems.

Before joining CNU in 2003, Anton was a research assistant and Ph.D. candidate at the Institute of Communication Networks at Munich University of Technology (Technische Universität München), working in the field of network design and traffic engineering for IP networks. Anton holds an M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University, and Dipl.-Ing. and Dr.-Ing. degrees both in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from Munich University of Technology.

Anton is an active member of the IEEE, a Program Evaluator for ABET, and an enthusiastic supporter of FIRST Robotics.
