I'm Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of ABB. Previously, I was the Senior Vice President of Research and Director of HP Labs at Hewlett Packard for 5 years. I spent about 22 years in academia at three universities (Dean of College of Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Walter Murphy Professor and Chairman of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northwestern University, and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana). I've founded two companies (AccelChip in 2000, and BINACHIP in 2004). I'm also a Fellow of IEEE, ACM, and AAAS, and have received both the ASEE Terman Award and the IEEE Booth Award. I am the author of 350 papers, and have supervised 37 Ph.D. students. I have a B.Tech degree in Electronics from IIT Kharagpur, and a MS and Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana.
