Keysight Technologies Inc. announced that Ravi Tandon, assistant professor at the UA Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, will receive the 2018 Keysight Early Career Professor Award for his work in advanced information theory for wireless networks and cloud computing.
The Keysight Early Career Professor Award was established to recognize and encourage excellent research enabling design, test or measurement of electronic systems.
Tandon's research focuses on the development of an information theory that supports efficient distributed computation. This work applies to the latest advances in wireless networks and to 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 signal interference management, a major issue in future networks.
