Vijay Raghunathan is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University and the Director of the Embedded Systems and IoT Lab, which he founded in 2006. His team investigates the design of new hardware and software architectures for next-generation embedded systems, Internet of Things (IoT) edge devices, and wearable/ implantable electronics, with an emphasis on ultra-low power design, micro-scale energy harvesting, edge analytics, and reliable/secure system design. Vijay also holds an appointment as the Anand Rajaraman and Venky Harinarayan Visiting Chair Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Madras.
Vijay has co-authored over a hundred journal and conference papers (several of which have won best paper and best design awards) and has presented numerous keynotes, invited talks, and tutorials on the above topics. Several of the technologies and systems developed in his lab have been used in academia and industry. He has chaired multiple premier ACM and IEEE conferences and has served on the organizing and technical program committees of many more. He serves as an Associate Editor of two leading research journals, the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems (TECS) and the ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks (TOSN). He also serves as an alternate Steering Committee member and co-chairs the academic task group of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), one of the largest international consortia on Industrial IoT, fog, and edge computing. At Purdue, he serves as the founding Director of the Professional MS program in the School of ECE. Vijay received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from UCLA and his B. Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering from IIT Madras, India.
