Charles L. Jackson works as a consultant and serves as an Adjunct Professor at George Washington University where he has taught courses on mobile communications, computer networking, computer security, and programming.
Professor Jackson has worked as both a digital designer and a system programmer. He does not like to admit how old he is; but, he does admit that the first computer mouse he used was made of wood. His professional interests include radio spectrum policy and spectrum management, wireless technology, computer security, and public policy in telecommunications. Dr. Jackson has consulted on spectrum and telecommunications policy issues for several governments including New Zealand, Panama, Jamaica, United Kingdom, Germany, Latvia, and the United States. He has also consulted for major corporations and industry associations on those issues. He was the first to invent combinatorial auctions, formulating them in the context of radio license auctions. Professor Jackson served three terms on the FCC's Technological Advisory Council and has testified numerous times before the U.S. Congress on technological policy issues.
