Alumnus Ashok Veeraraghavan Promoted to Associate Professor at Rice University

Alumnus Ashok Veeraraghavan (M.S. ’04, Ph.D. ’08) has been promoted to Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rice University. 

Veeraraghavan earned his M.S. and Ph.D. in ECE from the University of Maryland in 2004 and 2008, respectively. As a student at Maryland, he was advised by Dr. Rama Chellappa, Distinguished University Professor and Chair of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Since joining the Rice faculty in 2010, Veeraraghavan’s lab has developed mobileVision, a simple device to monitor eye health, and FlatCam, a project with engineering colleague Richard Baraniuk that is developing a lens-less camera platform.

Earlier this month, Veeraraghavan won an NSF CAREER Award for “A Signal Processing Framework for Computational Imaging: From Theory to Applications.” Read more about Dr. Veeraraghavan’s research and his award here
