Dr Arek Dadej obtained his MEng and PhD degrees, in 1978 and 1983 respectively, from the Technical University of Wroclaw, Poland. After 3 years of academic employment with the same University, he migrated to Australia in late 1986. After 3 years of employment with a private R&D company as Software Engineer and New Product Development Engineer, Dr Dadej joined the University of South Australia, first as a Research Fellow with the Digital Communications Group, then Lecturer with the School of Electronic Engineering, also affiliated with the Institute for Telecommunications Research (ITR). In 2001, Dr Dadej started his research-only secondment to ITR, where he is an Associate Research Professor and a leader of the Telecommunication Networks and Services (TNS) research group.

As a UniSA and ITR lecturer and researcher, Dr Dadej has taught courses in the areas of Computer Systems Engineering and Telecommunication Networks, and led major industry-sponsored research projects in the area of Telecommunication Networks. Recently, Dr Dadej has provided leadership and research contributions to projects including studies of ad-hoc networking technologies, high-capacity 802.11 WLAN design with guaranteed QoS, multicasting and scheduling techniques in satellite broadcast systems, protocols for IP mobility support in new generation Wireless Internet, and 'abnormal change' detection in communication networks. In 1999-2001, Dr Dadej led a research project sponsored by Nortel Networks, which focused on the network architecture, signalling, QoS and application session control in new generation Wireless Internet. The project involved 6 months research visit to Nortel Networks research laboratories in Richardson, Texas. Dr Dadej also led two projects within the Cooperative Research Centre for Satellite Systems, focusing on the network architectures and protocols for delivery of multimedia services via networks of small satellites. In the past, Dr Dadej led two major projects on Self-Organising Tactical Packet Radio Networks and their interoperation with fixed broadband infrastructure.

Dr Dadej's current research interests include protocols for mobility support in IP networks, QoS control in wireless/mobile network environment, and routing, transport performance, network configuration, service discovery and user access control aspects of ad-hoc networking.

Dr Dadej's contributions to the relevant engineering and research communities include involvement in the South Australian IEEE Communications and Signal Processing Chapter (Vice Chair 2001-2003, Chair from December 2003), a number of short consultancies to the industry, over 20 major research reports, paper reviews for special issues of IEEE Communications Magazine, WCNC'03, ICON'03, ICC'04, WITSP'02 and '03, and program committee membership for WITSP'02 and '03.
