Donald C. Cox (born 1937) is an electrical engineer researching wireless communication, currently a professor at Stanford University, where he heads the Wireless Communications Research Group. His work on multipath and other radio propagation problems has been fundamental to the development of mobile phone technology.
Cox received a B.S. and an M.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Nebraska in 1959 and 1960, respectively. After 3 years working in communications system design at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, he attended Stanford University, where he received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering in 1968. Next he went to work at Bell Labs. He became part of Bellcore (now Telcordia Technologies) when it was formed in 1984, and he stayed there until 1993, when he left to take an academic position at Stanford. He has been a member of the IEEE since its formation, and is particularly active in the IEEE Communications Society.
