Daniel Bliss is the director of the Bliss Laboratory for Information, Signals, and Systems, which brings together one researcher, ten doctoral and five master’s students. BLISS Lab has six funded research programs currently.

Bliss’ research focus is on innovative system design based on information theory, estimation theory, and statistical signal processing for the applications of adaptive wireless communications, remote sensing and physiological prediction. Bliss is also the director of the newly formed Center for Wireless Information Systems and Computational Architectures.

During the 2015-2016 fiscal year, Bliss won research awards for over $1.5mMillion. He joined ASU in 2012 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory where he was a senior member of the technical staff in the Advanced Sensor Techniques Group. He brings prior experience from General Dynamics, where he was a member of the superconducting magnet group and designed avionics for the Atlas-Centaur launch vehicle. In 2015 Bliss was elevated to Fellow of the IEEE, and was elected to the Radar System Panel of the IEEE AESS.
