Andrew Clegg - Participant

Andrew Clegg is the Spectrum Engineering Lead for Google. He is presently focused primarily on identifying spectrum sharing opportunities for wireless broadband networks, especially in the context of the PCAST model for multi-tier spectrum sharing. He has been integral in the adoption and implementation of the 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service, as founding chair of the Functional and Operational Requirements Working Group of the Wireless Innovation Forum.

Prior to joining Google, he served from 2003 – 2013 as the electromagnetic spectrum manager for the U.S. National Science Foundation. At NSF, he founded the Enhancing Access to the Radio Spectrum (EARS) program, a $50 million research program dedicated to funding academic and small business research focused on improving spectrum efficiency and access. Discoveries and innovations made under the EARS program continue to impact radio spectrum access today.

Prior to NSF, he was a Lead Member of Technical Staff at what is now AT&T Mobility, and senior engineer at Comsearch.

Andy has over 20 years' experience in national and international spectrum management for both government and commercial applications. He was a member of the U.S. delegation to two World Radiocommunication Conferences (2007 and 2012). He created and maintains, an online resource for spectrum allocation and utilization data, and has taught classes in the field of radio spectrum management.

Andy holds a PhD in radio astronomy (major) and electrical engineering (minor) from Cornell University, and a BA in physics and astronomy, with highest distinction, from the University of Virginia. He is also an extra class amateur radio operator (call sign W4JE).
