Alumnus Ravi Tandon Receives 2018 Keysight Early Career Professor Award 


Keysight Technologies, Inc. has awarded Alumnus Ravi Tandon (EE Ph.D. 2010) the 2018 Keysight Early Career Professor Award for his work on wireless networks and cloud computing environments.  Tandon’s award was announced by Business Wire here.

Since August 2015, Tandon has been an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Arizona. At Maryland, Tandon was advised by Professor Sennur Ulukus (ECE/ISR). Following his Ph.D. at Maryland, Tandon completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Princeton University with Professor Vincent Poor, and held a research assistant professor position at Virginia Tech, before joining the University of Arizona. Tandon received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2017 from the Division of Computing and Communication Foundations.

Tandon's research focuses on developing information theory that supports efficient distributed computation. This work applies to large scale machine learning, and distributed cloud computing. His research establishes mechanisms to store, access and compute data in distributed cloud environments reducing communications overhead while preserving data reliability and security. He also explores new methods for interference management, a major issue in future wireless networks.

The Keysight Early Career Professor Award was established in 2016 to recognize and encourage excellent research enabling design, test, or measurement of electronic systems. The program seeks to create strong collaborative relationships between Keysight researchers and leading professors early in their careers and to highlight Keysight's role as a sponsor of university research.
