Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Dr. Vijay Raghunathan received his B.Tech. in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles.
Before joining Purdue, Dr. Raghunathan was a visiting researcher at NEC Laboratories in Princeton, New Jersey. His research interests include the design of embedded computing systems, with an emphasis on power aware and reliable system design, low power system-on-chip architectures, wireless sensor and ad-hoc networks, and enabling technologies for pervasive computing.
Dr. Raghunathan was awarded the Edward K. Rice Outstanding Doctoral Student Award from the UCLA Henri Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Outstanding Masters Student Award from the UCLA Electrical Engineering Department. He was also the recipient of the design contest award at the ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design and won the best student paper award at the IEEE International Conference on VLSI Design in 2000 and a best paper award nomination at the ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design in 2006.
