Biographical Sketch

Vijay S. Pai received a BSEE degree in 1994, an MS degree in electrical and computer engineering in 1997, and a Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2000, all from Rice University. He joined the faculty of Purdue University in August 2004. Prior to that, he had served as an assistant professor at Rice University (2001-2004) and as a senior developer at iMimic Networking (1999-2001, now a part of Cisco's Ironport Systems subsidiary). He received the NSF CAREER award in 2003 and the Wilfred "Duke" Hesselberth Award for Teaching Excellence in 2007.

Vijay's research interests include computer architecture, networking software, and performance evaluation. He was a primary developer and maintainer of the publicly-available Rice Simulator for ILP Multiprocessors (RSIM), and also advised the creation and free public distribution of Spinach (a simulator for programmable network interface controllers), Toast (a server-assisted VoD-adapted BitTorrent), and SpeakAll! (augmented communication iPad app for special-needs children). Vijay is a member of the Eta Kappa Nu, Phi Beta Kappa, and Tau Beta Pi honorary societies, and his graduate education was partly supported by a Fannie and John Hertz Foundation Fellowship.
