Newsmaker: Jeyanandh Paramesh
Noteworthy: Paramesh will lead a four-year research project to reduce the electricity used by mobile devices and enable them to operate on frequencies where more bandwidth is available. Frequencies now used by cell phones and other devices are congested. The National Science Foundation awarded an $800,000 grant for the project. Pulkit Grover, an assistant professor at Carnegie Mellon University, will be a co-principal investigator.
Residence: Squirrel Hill
Occupation: Associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at CMU.
Background: Paramesh grew up in Bangalore, India, before moving to the United States. His research interests include the design of circuitry.
Education: Paramesh received an undergraduate degree from the Indian Institute of Technology in 1996; master's degree in electrical engineering from Oregan State University in 1998; and a doctorate from the University of Washington in 2003, both in electrical engineering.
Quote: “We are already at the limits of conventional technology. ... I think we've reached a point where you need research like this; you need new ways of accessing the spectrum just to keep up with the growing demand for bandwidth.”
